I have a pair, they are purple!

I could imagine that postage would be high though

I would replace BOTH so you are starting with a known good set.

Did the bracket on the caliper have Bracket Number 7616 stamped in it?

If you read his thread, there was a discussion that the excess pad could be ground off.

There are other calipers listed with 7618 in the description, although more expensive...

after i tried with rockauto the pontiac le mans caliper but the pads exceed the discs :banghead:

I think I've still got mine. They had done about 35,000 when I put Wilwoods on about 10 years ago. If you'd asked 3 years ago, I could have dropped them of as we passed through Beaupuy on the way down to Spain (via Milau, D999 and Toulouse).

i have a pair taken off my 1990 SE six months ago when the Willwood kit was fitted. They have only done 22000 miles since new but that also means they are a little stiff and would ideally be refurbed or at the least, exercised manually in a vice before fitting.
I will not be in France till late February so perhaps postage may be the best way. If you tell me you would like them, or even just one, I shall investigate the postage cost. PM me your address for that purpose.
