Re-manufacture of V8 Rear Brake Backplates

Post Number:#1  Post by Nich » October 14th, 2017, 8:01

The Two-Sixties have been looking into getting the rear brake backplates re-manufactured. We have hit a dead end with sourcing the originals but have managed to find someone who is prepared to make us up a small batch. He is involved in small production runs for Jaguar and has a good reputation in the industry for producing quality products.

The re-manufactured backplates will be electro-plated and then powder coated and will undoubtedly be better quality than the originals.

The cost to members will be approximately £215 per pair, this price includes a pair of backplates, post and packing (tracked and compensated) to UK addresses.
This cost will reduce to approximately £206 for any member wishing to collect (collection point to be decided).
Cost for shipping overseas, IOW etc., £206 + actual cost of postage.

The minimum production run will be for 25 pairs so unless we can reach this figure we will not be able to proceed with the order.

If you are interested in purchasing a set of backplates please PM me and I will add your name to the list on the Two-Sixties site. Although no money will be involved at this stage it is important to stress that we do need an indication of a firm committment to buy as once we reach the required number we will be placing the order.

It is worth bearing in mind that the originals are no longer available and our communications with various companies including ATE and Dorman have led to a dead end. We did find out that our backplates form a small part of the larger backplates fitted to the Peugeot 607 but these were made by ATE who have no plans to re-manufacture and there is no stock of these available anyway.

Mind if I post this on the FB Group and page Nich? we have some V8 owners there that don't tend to do forums much!
