might be no good to you but as a 1200 corsa it will have solid discs and personally id see that as a waste of my hard earned cahs to try and make the 1200s better, ive got some vented 1600 16v gsi calipers coming off my car in the next week or so which id gladly give you for free if you covered the postage, it would mean you would have vented as stadnard and could upgrade to maybe drilled and grooved and some braided hoses and actually get some benifit from them

well in all honesty mate i bought a corsa sri with everything in it and swopped the lot over, reshell if you will, the first one i bought cost me £400 for the engine with all the mounts and spacers, £20 for shafts, 80 for mtek hubs, £30 for cavy gsi rims £20 calibra turbo brakes, £100 exhaust,£20 rev counter speedo, fitted all myself

these calipers will be off either thursday or friday, at that point ill take a few pics for you and ill give them a clean and see about postage

2.0 16v brakes will take 14s and above(only certain vauxhall 14s)
cavy turbo brakes and v6 brakes are 15s and above

cavy rims are cheap and there pretty popular for the corsas

Surely it doesn't matter which wheels you have as long as they are big enough to accommodate the brakes you have? :confused: Can't see how cavvy wheels are NEEDED for a 2.0L conversion?
