They help suck the air out of the disc, therefore keeping it cooler.

Once the sore back had passed it was over to the wire wheel for some bolt clean up.
I thought this was going to be the easy part of the job, a trap for beginners with xxxxx taking cover as bolts seemed to grow wings and fly.
Once I got the hang of it and when they slipped they only went down we made some headway.
Did someone say they get HOT!..... oh yes and after some burns and some thumb grinding (thanks for the first aid Sad ) they were all done. I know they are not concourse correct but I think the bolts came up really good.



Excellent! Cheer Nothing better than hearing of someone else's pain Thumbs Up

A wire wheel is an auto-elecs best friend & worst enemy. Even when you think your holding on tighter than 10 tight things at a tight thing convention, they still sometimes manage to get away - worst case is , as i mentioned in a previous thread, is when they accelerate into the solar plexus/sternum region.
I also love that you are regrowing a fresh set of fingerprints. Thumbs Up :rotfl:

I enjoyed this little project very much bring the brakes brakes to life, I know some do amazing things on their cars but this is a achievement for my car and hopefully can help others down the track.
I Will post a photo pictorial of the process

Before



After

Hey Justin, nice work and documenting.

Do you recall whether there is a gallery connecting the two sides of the caliper or is the fluid/pressure transferred via the bundy tube? This might go someway to explain Nuts thinking that the could/should not come apart (no gallery = no probs with separating).

Do you really need to bake the parts? We just bought a new oven and H will splinter if I bake the brakes
Cheers

The bundy tube is the fluid transfer line, no gallery.

It is OK to separate the 2 halves, just keep the 2 pieces in the same bag so they go back together.

I have mixed & matched before with no issues, usually when someone has ground one of the halves for reasons that are beyond me.

After a nice cruise today out to Binalong with some fellow owners and a neat meeting of old trucks and buses at Yass service center.
I decided to pop the radio out to give to John Car to restore for me, well try to get it out.

Car is a factory AC car so not simple to slide it out and down. Any tips on getting it out?
or tips on getting the glove box inner out so i can get it through there as it seems to catch on the duct and then the heater box, its a bit fragile so i didnt want to force it so any hints for a beginner?

feel like a knob for asking but a couple of hours to do a 30 min job Argh


Cheers,
j

Once you have unscrewed it, the glove box folds down (sides push in) to allow it out.

Have the glove box door off.

The main reason for the backing plate is actually to keep road dirt out of the inside pads, as Kerry said these do also have air scoops same as falcon ones. Ford Oz used them up to the end of XF, they took them off the EA's to try and keep the brakes cooler. EA's had very poor front brake performance, this was one of the fixes, get more air to them.
