Well, caliper handbrake mech was shot. I've put a new caliper on, which seems to be working nicely (albeit needing another brake bleeding doing, which will happen today), so add 'repaint calipers' to my to-do list! lol

Yep, just when the cash comes in to put fun bits on, maintenance saps it away lol ah well, that's the joys of running older cars.
