Yellow passivated is how they would look.

 

Is that true for all IB cars up to 1989?

 

Yes, apart from the turbo calipers

Nice. Were these the same throughout 930's production ie 75-89 ... as I assume late 80's model came with 16" wheels which could have allowed for a bigger brake system.

FYI, 3.0 turbos used the little alley S calipers and 20mm thick discs. The 917 type caliper was introduced on the 3.3 turbos.

 

Those "after" pics look pretty good.

One minor error - the pistons weren't at 20 degrees, more like 30-35. They're a bit of a so and so to rotate when fully recessed and the seals are new and tight. If you use CCW perhaps best to tell them that they need to be at 20 degrees.

Just spoke to Classic Car Automotive and apparently they won't touch 'modern stuff' like my Boxster calipers so I guess I'll phone Big Red unless anyone has another suggestion?

Lee did my complete set of 930 brakes. they had been on the shelf for 20 years.

1800 for everything, took a while too. I have no idea what was done , but probably some expensive parts?

brilliant result though.
