MG Midget and Sprite Technical - Metro Calipers & Vented Discs


I've trawled the various archived threads on the conversion from standard setup to the Metro Turbo 4 pot calipers and vented discs. Lots of discussions, theories & issues - but no step by step guides etc.

I'm aware there is an article somewhere (Mascot?) on how to do this - would anybody have a copy they can share with me please?

Any help greatly appreciated!

You can email me - nick AT parrmail DOT co DOT uk

Thanks :-)

If you or someone else can let me know which month it appeared (as long as it was produced since I became the editor), then I'm sure I can get it out to you.

The midget & Sprite Club Mascot Magazine 2006 Oct & Nov editions had an article on this subject.

Of course what all should be doing is signing up as Midget and Sprite club members and getting your password to let you read the back issues of MASCOT online.

Guy is right, its the best 3 tenners you can spend on your carhobby, the magazine is absolutly great!
Nowadays fueling upyour midget costs more then a membership with all the added bonusses like insurancediscount, 12 collor magazines and local and international activities.
No stif upperlip mg/healy people, just good folk!

No picture available of the magazine but one of the anual meetings at Silverstone classic.
