Fairlane ZC Disc Brakes

Post by Saxy » Sun 05 Feb 2012, 19:24

Hi All:

Are pads for my '70 Fairlane disc brakes easily available? Tried the Midas approach, but no-one could help...

If yes, does anybody have part numbers and/or recommendations as to where to go in JHB North or PTA?
If no, can anyone help with suggestions?

Cheers guys,

YJH

The last option is to have the current set re-bonded. I am a firm believer in the quality work done by Exodus in Vereeniging. Malibu done by them and several cars before :D :D

Hi Johann - just as an aside, it is highly illegal to bond brake pads. The technique plus the glues combined with the lining cannot handle the extreme heat generated by discs, especially in a tank like a Fairlane. Jy soek kak.
You will see on certain pads from the old days they used to rivet them on.
Cheers,
Doug
