Hello Debbie,

I just wanted to let you know how delighted I am with the new front and rear brakes on my XK150. I previously had your 4 pot calipers on the car for about 20 years now and have always been pleased with the performance however the combined new front and rears have made a quite noticeable improvement on my original system.

Many thanks and congratulations on your excellent products that have made such a difference to my lovely old car.

Kind regards,

M.T  (upgraded to billet alloy front and rear brake kits)

Hello Coopercraft,

Hello Coopercraft

Well done for spotting my E-Type does not benefit from your brake upgrades and leaving your calling card on the screen.

It may do one day but in the interim rest assured we already use your stuff on customer cars, most recently less than 4 weeks ago.

Kind regards

The good news is that on my Mk 2 I have the best front calipers available – Coopercraft!  I bought them from you in the late 1990’s and they still work great.  In 15 years I sadly have only about 100 miles on the car, but I have kept the brakes working by driving the car approx. once per month.  I think the front calipers are working fine, although I have not taken them apart to check.  But now I am going through the entire car and getting it back on the road, and I came across the rear calipers which are in bad shape.

Please let me know if I should order the steel kit, shipped to CT in USA.  I can call you today with credit card.

Many thanks.

Thanks for that I’d  like to order the aluminium front calipers but I notice there is mention on your website of updated rear piston assemblies.

Please will you let me know what the differences are between these and my current inch and five eighth assemblies and what is the price for the rears?

I’ve been using your four pot fronts with the original rear units for 22 years now and have found them to be excellent so would be interested to know what you think would be the advantages of changing the rears also?

Thanks.

Good evening,

In the last few weeks you have supplied a rear brake kit, pads etc for a Mk2 Jaguar.

These have been a great addition to the Coopercraft vented discs and 4 pot callipers that transformed the front end braking when I installed your kit a couple of years back.

The new set up has been used in anger at two Goodwood track days in the last week and the brakes are doing a good job of stopping from much higher speeds.

We are planning to upgrade the brakes on a 1972 XJ6 restoration project with EBC RK239 vented rotors.

Hi

I am contacting you from Australia.

I have a Daimler Dart SP250 with very poor brakes.

I would like to upgrade, do you have them to fit my 1964 SP250?

I have purchased your product for my Mk2 Jaguar some years ago and they were fantastic.

Can you please provide a quote for shipping to Queensland  Australia.

Look forward to hearing from you

Regards

B.M …………………… Hi Debbie

Just wanted to say how happy I am with the calipers and disc plates.

I have finally got the SP250 back on the road with fantastic brakes.

Attached is a pic of the caliper mounted with the disc. Looks very business like eh.

‘Unrivalled technical experience and backup from Coopercraft International’:

 

Hi there

Just a quick update on the brake situation.  After our last discussion I did make adjustments to the linkage arm on the rear brake master cylinder.  This had very little free play and this was adjusted to ~2mm.  At this stage the hand brake had been removed so this could not cause a problem and the foot brake then behaved with no problems.  I have now reinstalled the overhauled hand brake calipers so if there are any further problems it must be down to the hand brake.

I had never come across this problem with free travel on the master cylinder before and there is no mention of it in any of the collection of E-type books I have.

Thanks for your assistance

Just want to say “thanks” for getting the order here so quickly. It’s an amazing world, when I can order in the UK on Monday and have it here by the weekend.

Never would have dreamed that when i started this car 20 years ago… now I have no excuses for not finishing!

Everything fits perfectly, and is a huge improvement on the original, both in looks and of course, function.

MALAYSIA

Dear Mr. Cooper,
It occurs to me that you may appreciate some after sales feedback.
Your front disc brake conversion was fitted to my 1953 XK120 OTS in March 2014. The transformation in braking performance is startlingly impressive. Pedal pressure is light, in fact fully up to modern car standards – and without any servo assistance. After more than a year, the brakes’ performance is still first class and very reassuring in more than matching the demands of Malaysia’s roads and heavy traffic in our fiercely tropical climate.
I have had no hesitation in recommending Coopercraft disc brakes to fellow members of the Malaysia and Singapore Vintage Car Register.
You can be justifiably proud of your products.
Yours sincerely,
D.F

Hi Debbie i fitted your full brake caliper upgrade package to my XK 150 in 2012 . It transformed the braking efficacy to such an extent that i have now done 3 track days and 2 major tours the last been 4100 miles to the top of Norway. This trip was done in only 15 days actual driving so we were pushing on. The billet aluminium looks like new after 11,000 hard miles and no matter how dusty and stained it gets , comes up like new with a spray of P21S wheel gel. The pad upgrade to EBC “green stuff”as recommended by yourselves has resulted in a great reduction in brake dust deposition on my wire wheels and also has taken the stopping power to another level. Coopercraft brake upgrades are certainly not the cheapest on the market but i feel you get a vastly superior product that is worth every penny you spend.

Thank you very much. The brakes now are just as they should be.

Relatively light pedal with the travel much reduced travel from the way it was, progressive and firm. The car drives straight and true, the weaving and twitching has gone – not surprising now that all the suspension parts are secure. I’ll return to the differential again after the new correct oil has had some use.

Best wishes,

Dear Mr Cooper,

Just a note to thank you for the work you did on my 3.8 Mk2. It’s going really well and a pleasure to drive, with the vibration from the prop shaft and the fluffing from the exhaust from the air leak gone. Also, I can’t believe its not dropping oil anymore! I’d got so used to it over the years I’d given up on it.

The fine weather has given me the chance to get about a bit, more than it has for ten years or so. The more the engine gets used the better it gets. I might even exceed 1000 miles!

anyway, thanks once again for transforming the car.
