Someone will know....
Where can I purchase (in the UK) brake dust shields/guards in the UK,
so my newly refurbished period alloys don't get crudded up with brake
I need mail order or internet places to get these from.
I rrealise there may be an issue about reduced brake cooling, but I'm
not a high performance driver, so I won't have any issues about that.
Its a 77 w123 280E
If you were in the USof A (and they'd fit) I'd gladly give you the ones
purchased for my '94 SL.
Mercedes abhors these, as even with the "vents" pointed in the correct
direction, they allegedly can allow the brake temps to get much warmer than
they'd prefer. More importantly (for me at least), they really look like
crap! They have a tendency to make nice alloy wheels look like hub-caps
(yuckkk!) I kept 'em on the car for about a month, before yanking them
off... and they've been in the basement ever since (I'd rather put up with
the brake dust, than use these or install "harder" pads... YMMV!)
