Brake Calipers wanted
#1
I'm looking for a new pair of Front brake calipers/pistons for 16723 
One is too pitted to refurbish so I think new is the way to go... 
Any recommendations, best prices?

To be fair, I bought a brand new set from EBay (from Ireland IIRC) I think in the region of £110 for the set, though I did have to get new brake lines made up as they were different fittings. I sold my old set to Stian I think.

Be careful with the cross-ref sets. I ended up fitting some last year and the casting is slightly different from the DeLorean ones and I had to grind edges slightly to make it fit with the stock mounting brackets.

I've bought the Pistons from the EuroTec website and refurb kits, as well as new front calipers.

The full calipers were well priced, and fitted fine, they were a little tight with Ed's wider vented disks due to a very slight difference in the casting, but it is the same part number as OEM and are perfect for oem disks.
