After a set of rear calipers with snapped bleed nipples, don't want any with fooked pistons or seals though, also handbrake mechanism must be complete and in good order,

I want them because a fella I know reckons he can install bigger bleed nipples in place of the snapped ones cheaply, so bit of an experiment really,

Oh and cheap as possible please Smile

If it's just to experiment with bigger bleed nipples, I've got a pair of 309 GTi/205 1.9 GTi front callipers with snapped nips you can have for the cost of postage.
