oops, forgot to remove the old one.

the opening for the brakes pads are different......... by a lot from what is see.......besides colour and angle of shot makes them look different, but the opening on the old looking one is "V" shaped and wider then the red one.......?

I was never good at those cartoons in the newspaper. So, I give up.

George, You are going to modify the Jag pads to fit?

George-
The rotor slot appears to be a bit further outboard on the new one.

I know, I know...

The bottom one is a "barn find" and worth 3 or 4 times as much as the top one.

What do I win?
