you guys... :laugh:

Almost bought a MK1 Golf yesterday...damn that body was clean ('83 no rust), and on top of that it was white, 2dr and a bargain. I would love an MK1 project after the Corrado is finished...Wife didn't approve though :mad: ,seems like I'll have to buy her something if i want to get this MK1, LOL :laugh:

On another note, anyone have a set of G60 calipers and carriers for sale (cheap)???

Did I mention that I hate automotive painters? :banghead: ...That guy is moving slower than Kyle's turtle thread :laugh:

At least I made him commite that he'll have it finished until end June/max 5 July (or else he will get paid in very long instalments)

Btw, what do you think a fair price for a set of (used) G60 calipers and carriers is these days?
(Yes, I have checked the classifieds :D)

You know, my Corrado was an 1.8 16V KR (and those had the 256mm brakes)...

you shouldn't end up paying too much for them... IIRC the cariers are the same between VR6 and G60 cars just the offset of the hub is different. I will verify in a bit on ETKA for you.

I sold a set of Vrs from a 93 (same as G60 though), calipers, carriers and lines, shipped for $90
So, the price i got offered is def right...that's $50 + shipping $ to Europe. The latter is the one that really sucks, he told me they want $60 to send them here :banghead:
