Default 408 Brakes

I am the new owner of a Bristol 408.
Can anyone tell me the availability of brake discs along with
cross reference guides with other cars?

Thanks,
Jeff

Default Disks for V8s

Have a chat with the Spares Rep for BODA as I believe they have a source.

Hi Jeff,
I believe the brakes calipers were Dunlop - similar or the same as that fitted to other contemporary vehicles such as Jags E-Type (possibly other Jags) and Aston DB4. I don't know about the brake discs though.

Bristol later switched to Girling brakes, which have much larger pads.

Just for future reference, there are some resources on this site here
