Still struggling with the brakes! I contacted an eBay seller to ask if their calipers were suitable for banjo fittings, but did not really get a proper answer, I think they buy in and sell on stuff and don’t actually have the item on their shelf. They just asked for the Reg No or VIN number.
So I had a go at at drilling out the bleed nipple, I was still unable to remove the old nipple so just kept drilling then tried to tap the hole a bit larger at M8. But the hole I drilled has gone a bit off centre so I suspect I may have trouble sealing the bleed hole. I bought some M8 bleed nipples, but they seem a bit shorter than the hole in the caliper so I think I’ll just have to bite the bullet and order a replacement caliper, hoping I get a one with the faced flexi tappings.
In the meantime, I have started to fit the vinyl covering to the dash rail. I thought I see if I could make the rail a bit ”soft touch” so covered the rail with some 6mm sound deadening foam

I then applied the vinyl to that, looking good?

it did not go as planned, whilst initially it was looking fine, when I tried to fit the chrome trim around the switch plinth the chrome trim would not fit due to the extra thickness of the foam! I have tried to remove the foam in the area of the switch panel, but am not sure whether the vinyl will go back as it may be a bit stretched. I will try again tomorrow, as I have given up for the day!
