VWII Calipers and Braided Lines...
« on: May 12, 2015, 06:22:23 pm »
Just to confirm this:

vwII Calipers are off a MK2 Golf 16v?
256 disks are off a MK2 Golf 16v/ Lupo GTI too?

For braided lines will I need to get some custom ones made or does anyone know a set that works off the shelf?

Heard there was a guy of CGTI who can make them, anyone know his name?


Thanks
Matty

VwII calipers I thought we standard mk1 golf/g40 items,

Mk2 golf 16v gti ones were girling 54's I think maybe someone else could correct me on that if I'm wrong

Mk2 Golf GTI 8v and early 16v models had the VWII calipers with the vented 239mm discs. Same as what came standard on the G40.
The later Mk2 GTI 16v models had the Girling 54 calipers with the 256mm discs.

Just noticed my S reg saloon diesel polo has Girling 54 256mm front brakes. As does my T reg Seat Ibiza diesel.

Try Hel brakes for custom hoses.
