nice :)

For brakes there are various options. I don;t know if you have the old volvo 240 over there but the 4 pot calipers will fit the UK chevette at least along with different brake discs.

The discs maybe the tricky part over there as I am not familiar with what GM models made it to Brazil

Others on here will have more info on brakes i suspect.

Bill, Unfortunately in Brazil does not have this Volvo model.
Over the weekend I read a few things about brakes in the forum, and I researched these Volvo 240 calipers.
My sister lives in London, so I can buy through her and in August I bring the calipers to Brazil.

I am asking because here in Brazil use some adaptations that I do not trust.
