That's 3 months, so I don't think that's too much production. I've 
personally seen 2 of these cars, and others on the list have more. 
Unfortunately, I no longer have that car, and I didn't think to save 
the production plate.

Nothing special, straight out of the parts listings for the calipers. 
It should also show up with the steering knuckles. I thought for sure 
that your book would have it. I expected you to message back that 
your eyes had unclouded and found the page: Illustration 65, part 1.
