Roster gods accepted. Had my birthday today and.......soooooo angry

Putting front end together and the buggers have given me V6 rotors (270mm) and not V8 rotors (290mm) only evident when I assemble. Never checked as I asked for V8 ones 😡😡

Sat here drinking wondering why the F$&@ the pad wasn't contacting all the way. Took rotor off to measure 😡😡I was very specific in what I asked for.

Yes they are VT calipers in background.....

Guys took em back today with no receipt no box and no dramas. Twenty bucks for the larger correct ones. Petty grateful in the end.

Hi Marc;
Happy Birthday for yesterday my birthday today but I think I have a couple of years on you go the Geminis (not the car  Grin)

Are you using the red calipers I'm using VP on my EK ute and find they hit the cross member tower when turning to lock and I may have to grind a bit off I think.

The silver one on the deck look thinner is that the VT?

Again happy birthday
Regards

Happy birthday to you too mate.
Yep that's a VT caliper. I considered using adapter hubs and VT but it's ready to go with VS. yep they hit the lip of the tower
As you see there originally was a notch but the calipers hit where the white lines are. Going to nick that out and should be right. The steering arm will hit the stopper on the other side first then.

Except for the thickness of the rotor the VT calipers fit very well and don't hit like the VS. But keeping the VS ones  on

Nice work NES!

Looks like there's a bit of wiring to contend with, also.
