Got the rear TRW GTI calipers, carriers and 286mm EBC discs installed. The process turned out to be a nightmare due to the first mechanic I too it to. I ended up buying a new ABS to replace the one he had supposedly refurbished. Then my brake servo went so had to replaced that, the heatshield off the servo was just lying in the bonnet and one of the bolts was loose and that's what caused it to brake. I'm only after getting my seats and floor mats clean of the brake dust.

You've had a proper nightmare with those brakes, glad you're out the other side of it now.
Caddy is looking great.

Hi Doc,

Thank you very much. I'm almost there. There was a clip broke on my handbrake cable he didn't tell me about, so just have to replace that now.

Picked up Caddy Life Dash Vents in the cyclone (grey). I wrapped them in the 3M Matrix Black vinyl wrap to see how it would look, the plan was to have them sprayed pure grey but now I'm undecided.

I like the wrap mate, I’d personally leave them wrapped.

Finished off the Caddy Life dash vent trims today, the longer one was a pain, took me 5 attempts. I ended up separating the vents from the face so I could finish the wrap off nicely around the actual vent. Glued it back together with some Tiger Seal and used my old soldering iron to do a bit of plastic welding. The old vents popped out easy with a trim removal tool.

Under body Sound Insulation installed, hoping it will keep the engine bay a bit cleaner.
