Default Update/Change

Decided to upgrade the rear brakes...I like the appearance of front and rear matching brake calipers. The car won't see any track use, so cracking of the rotors is not a concern.

This was just a quick fitment to see if everything cleared. I grabbed the first caliper out of the box... I do realize that the caliper is upside down!

Before the experts weigh in on rear brake bias...these are 993TT calipers with the small piston sizes (28mm leading and trailing). Hard to see but visible in the last picture (picture of 968 rear caliper and the 993TT caliper) Smaller pistons than the 968 Brembos but larger pads.

Gene, did you have to deal with the hatch delamination as well?
