Well guys I blew it and ordered two of everything off of Minisport. It wasn't quite clear to me that I was ordering a PAIR of disc assemblies and a PAIR of drum assemblies. The website listing of the parts mysteriously shows everything as a pair now. Anyway I don't want to return them because I'll have to pay for shipping a second time and apparently it's like triple $$$ to send it back across the pond. I figure I'm going to keep these here and try to sell them to you fine fellows. Product description below:

Original price I paid after currency conversion: $1,017

I'm going to try to unload these for $800. I'll pay the shipping within the US. Text me 530-441-9525.

Perfect for someone who is doing a restoration on a car, probably cheaper than rebuilding the ones on the car.

Thanks man, that was kinda my thought process. I replaced the rear brake cylinder about 6 months ago and the same one went bad again. The rest of the brakes in general looked pretty haggard so I wanted to start from scratch with the peace of mind having something all-around fresh.

I'm kinda new to working on cars but I love Minis. I had one when I was stationed in Italy and this one was seen by my friend at Keesler AFB so I had to have it. I'm currently working through its issues.

Is the post itself alright? Should I have added anything else?

Good luck with the sale and welcome to the forum.

I don't know anyone who's in the place of rebuilding one of these at this point, but I'll check around...

I've sold a few things on the Facebook groups - there's one just for Mini Parts and one for British parts, as well as Facebook market place- that get's you exposure all over the world.

are these still available??

The last time he was on here was back in Feb. when he posted these. If you click on his screen name you can send him a "personal message". That will get emailed to him if he listed a good email address.

Spoke him and stated it was SOLD.

I have some 8.4" Lockheed calipers for cheap if that helps you?
