Received a few more essential
items this week thanks to you guys on here
Now have the Azonic rims which have a cool matt brushed finish and will look great once built up against the matt black frame.
Suburbanreuben was a star coming up with the Hope C2 #1 caliper i've been searching for. After a thorough clean, polish and strip down it's come up lovely. Just need to put pistons & seals back in and get bolts to clamp it together. The other #1 half Tom supplied will come in very handy for spares as it has already!
Lastly the Hope 22mm caliper adaptor which i thought i'd never find to enable the whole lot to work together. It's certainly a big weight off the shoulders having this lot in front of me.
Still having trouble with the actual Spooky frame mount though.
I've emailed Mickey again but no joy yet hearing back with anything. Have also tried two of FTW's email addresses but they just get thrown back so not sure what's what there. I did read on the Sinister forum that he still had a few mounts, although that was late last year, so hoped he might be able to help somehow.. All i need is some measurements to get one made.
I do have a plan though once i have a rear hub and 165mm rotor to mock up the mount with card or wood or something, hopefully getting it positioned right so i can use that as a template to take measurements from. It should work out fine if all else fails
Still got a few ideas knocking about and may even be able to make it adjustable somehow for finetuning!?
Small things are there to try our patience!
Big thanks also to Steve(callookuk) for letting me know about some BRM rims he had for sale. Went and picked those up mid week and they're going to look ace on the bug one day! Already had a little go with the polishing to see how they'll come up.. sweet is the word
Overall it's been a good week for rims and things!... She's coming together slowly.
