Hi people. Can anybody give me the dimensions of the angle brackets fitted to the brake caliper on the Mk2 Vitesse. The bracket is used to connect the flexible hose to the short brake line loop from the calliper. No one stocks them anymore so I'm going to have to make them. Any help  greatly appreciated. Cheers, Dave.

Followed by in no particular order, 350 and 500 Royal Enfield Bullet, Herald 1200, Herald 13/60, Mini 1275 GT, Vitesse 2L convertible, Audi 80, Audi 80 Sport, Fiat 124 Sport Coupe, Triumph 2000, Mk 2 Estate, Fiat Tipo, Fiat Stilo, Fiat Uno, Peugeuot Turbo Diesel(yuk), Lancia HPE 2000ie (wow! a dream!) So far 3 Heralds and My fourth Vitesse in the garage. I may have forgotten some... It's my age.. Oh , Honda 400 four.. Terrifying! And the 2 Renault 5s. Oh, and the Ford Granada 3 litre estate..I think that's the lot.

No. Those fit on the top suspension pivot. I mean the ones fitted to and retained by a calliper fixing bolt. Cheers, Dave.

D'oh. Forgot to look at them when I was in the garage. Mine are Mk1 Vitesse and Mk3 GT6 but I don't think that bracket changed.

Right, just measured up Tessa's brackets.

They appear to be made of 20mm wide bar, 10cm total length (so 5cm on each side of the bend) with the holes 1cm in from each end. Thickness looked to be 1.5mm but could be 2mm.

Thanks Rob. "Holes 1cm from each end". Is that the centre of the hole or the edge of the hole? Cheers, Dave.

Sorry, that's the centre. Roughly. I couldn't measure precisely but the nut looked to be as close to the end as to the side, hence hole centre is 1cm from the end in the centre of a 2cm wide strip.
