Since the takeover of AP , does anyone know what products are still available through Caparo that are suitable for minis?

They went bust about 2 years ago, though, another company (escapes me right now which one) picked up the ashes and things seem to be in production again.

Caparo offered all the UK Lockheed Hydraulic Range but no Disc Calipers or Servos (Boosters). I found their stuff ~ OK ~ but not quite as good as the Lockheed made gear.

I don't know what the current range is like.

Thanks, Chris.
That's a bit disappointing that it has folded. I would have thought there was a future for classic car parts, considering England made so many of the original classics.
We all made jokes about OEM products until the aftermarket offerings were the only option.
