I worked with a British guy that was very into British colloquialisms and Cockney rhyming slang... do you know the response to "And Bob's your uncle"?


I know I don't, but I'm certainly hoping to know it now.

I wasn’t aware it required a response so I’m intrigued

Assuming a favourable wind direction on the day in question, I’m technically at least, a cockney.

My coworkers used "and Millie's your aunt", but ya... I never knew there was any response to it either.

All four uprights back from bead blasting. Off to powder coat next week.
Oh, and the photo in the last post was the brake disc slotting, T3 they call it, bi-directional which is good.

I was busy modelling the caliper, and realised I actually have all of the bits with me right now to mock it up...

Which looks like this, kind of...

And as the CAD shows, the dogbone is not going to be as simple as I hoped...

I have options, one of which is to go to a larger disc, which would look better in the 18" rim, but I'll leave that for now and play around with what I can make work with what I have already bought.

I think there would be a (small) market for your caliper adapter brackets

If I can get it to work, I can't see a reason not to offer either the CAD or the parts. I know folks have talked about this on some Miata forums, mostly shot down over the price of the calipers, but that was a few years ago, the calipers are coming down in price, although that makes them higher mileage of course so it's a trade-off.

I have the uprights back from blasting. It was a bugger of a job to get all of my masking off, but that is finished now.

I now need to re-mask for powder coating, but that will be done differently and the powder guy is going to use a few of his own tricks to make that faster and more effective.

Bobs your uncle means the same as Like a job in the town. Just to set the record straight

My back is still slowly improving, so a couple of hours in the shed today.
Pressed the new studs into the rear hubs:

I've been losing stuff and worrying about damage etc, so finally had a clean up and sort:

Still need to clear out some shelves to put these on but feeling better about that.
