Brake rotor skimming in Hamilton (On car skim)

mrfxit, Apr 22, 7:44pm
Who's still doing it, have heard that most brake places don't do it on car now & instead take the whole hub off of the an attached rotor hub.

Can't do that with a 4x4 so there must be someone with an on car brake skimmer here

On a different direction, at Rockauto, what would a 95 Nissan Caravan be called over there?

in general, they don't do mechanical work, you take the parts to them.

Hence the Rockauto question.
OEM I suspect, would be a nasty price.
Any NZ aftermarket dealers I can try?

Any vehicle will be rubbish to the wrong person.
Eg: 95% of modern factory sports cars are rubbish, too big/heavy/ full of electronics's/ expensive to repair/ easy to write off (insurance write off) & simply too hard to work on at home

Thanks but nope.
Last name comes up but wrong engine etc

All the other options I have checked have the wrong engine (US only seems to have petrol versions) which could effect suspension types.

I bought a new pair of discs on TradeMe for only $38 each.
