We don't have the e-Brake parts sorted yet, but will eventually. The APs don't have integrated parking brakes - it will be two separate smaller calipers.

Thanks! Yeah, the G2/GiroDisc vented rear solution that Group 2 Motorsports offers is very nice (even better than simply fitting the cast iron SZ rear rotors and spaced calipers - the G2 setup has floating aluminium hats), but there's still a ton of heat-transfer and buildup at the rear, pad swaps are a pain in the arse and I personally like more brakes at the rear. This car builds speed FAST! And no, the goal would NOT be to increase unsprung weight - quite the opposite!

After having the 17” momo’s on for a year, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to put the 15” revolution RFX wheels back on. As the 17’s just seemed to screw up the quality of the ride on uk roads.

So I sent my old, flaky Revos off to my wheel guy. Picked an olive grey titanium middle colour, and got him to hand polish the outlets.

Picked them up yesterday. Hopefully fit them later this week

Wow, they look sensational. I agree that the 15's give a better ride. I even found the 16's a little harsh with my RS suspension.

Looks great Jamie. It reminds me of the sad loss three months ago of our black one due to a runaway Hyundai van. My son got a beautiful black 1999 GTV 3 litre V6 with the insurance proceeds and the seller traded the 75 wreck to use the engine and gearbox in his 1985 GTV6. I got two grand cash to spend on my 1988 Range Rover project, so it all worked out well. It was upsetting to lose a car we put so much work into though.

Repainted my wheels from matt black to dark grey last time I changed tyres. Helps having two sets of wheels! Tyres are 205/50 Yokohama AD08R and the wheels are Revolution 7x15.

I know you guys recommend the AD08R for the GTA-Rs, but how do they work for you on the 75? I've also been ogling at them for my 75 TS.

Restoring a 75 TS aka the tickspark.

Really good, this is about my third or fourth set now. Can't fault them. Toyo R888s have more grip but they need loads of negative camber or they tear off the outer edge, these don't blow apart like that so 1 degree of negative does the trick.

195 55 15 is the original size (at least on Euro cars) but 205 50 15 is similar.

205 55 15 is too big for a Milano

I have seen pictures of Milano with 225-55-15. The offset I have is the standard 30, and just want to buy the best size tire that would work with the car without touching.
