    I worked with Ross after he had finished restoring the car and I'm sure Kenny worked on a lot of the bits of that car when Ross was at Williamstown in NSW.

    Kenny and I went to Ross' funeral a few years back

    Ross was fanatical, it took him several goes in doing the body for the car until he was satisfied it fit the period style.

    The cars were delivered to people with JUST a chassis , engine, etc but no body ..... you took the running chassis to a coachbuilder in the day and they put the external body on the car to your liking so try doing a concourse originality on THAT :p

    I should have got Ross to sign my copy of SCW with his article, now I'll have to get Wes to "get it signed" now :p

    Not one that I'm happy with.

    I'll see what Ducati come back with.....but if it's not a set of new discs, there will be a problem.

    No.... Metal pads and metal discs means deposits left on the discs when they get hot and try not to hold the front brakes on while stationary blah blah.... Doesn't make sense to me at all.

    Why? You don't think Ducati would honour their warranty?

    Ok, the reason I ask is that all the new cars I've bought, warranty states discs are wear and tear items and not covered. I suppose a manufacturing defect could be argued. Were the brakes pulsing when you bought it?
