Rear
Had some rear calipers from Roland Rat, I snapped 1 bleed nipple but bleed it through the inlet pipe instead, fitted Mr swampys hoses and made up some brake lines to join it all together.

Some forced inducution, I modified the existing inlet pipe to allow me to put the filter behind the light, still needs the light hole opening and a snorkel to feed the top of the filter and keep it cool.

I bought a oil cooler from spiky, all good but the cooler pipes weren't long enough to have it where i wanted it, so got in touch with a company on e-bay and had 2 40inch pipes made and they fit perfect Smile I modified the bumper and mounted the oil cooler to it giving plenty of room for the fans.
