Needless to say the front brakes are also proving to be a saga. Remember that I am using a Midget front cross member with disc brake front hubs....I knew that I had a pair of stainless front flexi pipes which should connect to the hubs. Well they are nearly a pair, one has the correct banjo end fitting, the other has the straight fitting for Mk1 Sprite drum brakes.....Although it does fit, the angle is wrong. No problem, I need some more fittings, I will get a banjo to suit. Fortunately our local motor factors were open and I shouted across the 2m gap what I was trying to do and showed a fitting with the thread that I wanted. The assistant went "round the back" and finally returned with 4 male fittings...."Its all we've got, they are imperial and no-body wants them now...." "so you can take them"...which was a good, if partial, result! I've now ordered the missing(hopefully) parts from a Sprite specialist.
