    I doubt he cares much anymore

    Glad to see somebody took the "bull by the horns" and properly marketed the best kit out there! trust me there are no substitutes

    If you need more pics of my old 88" setup using EBC slotted rotors and pads I will be happy to submit them.

    Me and Timm drove that Series 1 109 to Moab one year and it scared the s..t out of me on I70 in the rain with 37"Super Swampers... who owns it now??

    We'd love to have a testimonial and a picture from you. Please submit it to info@roamoffroad.com. I think it's important to illustrate to people how long this conversion has been around and how many happy customers it has served.

    Thanks for the kind words!

    I don't have Timm's conversion, but I do have the sliders he built for me on my 1988 RRC. Timm promised if they ever bent into my doors, he would do all the repairs for free. I have yet to take him up on that offer. I bet there are a bunch of people out here who can attest to the builder!
    It's about people and the Land Rovers that own them.

    Happy New Year!

    I wanted to alert readers of this thread that we began shipping the Timm Cooper Disc Brake conversion in late November 2011 and still have some in stock. We're gearing up for another production run later this month which will also include conversions for Series Land Rovers running the late 1980 and forward style wheel bearings. ROAM OFFROAD will be manufacturing some new products for Series Land Rovers in 2012 and hope you'll find them as exciting as we do!

    Thanks!

    I bought the new Roam Offroad disc brakes as soon as I heard they were shipping them. Brian found out about my 109 restoration and figured it would be a great opportunity to take photos for a "How to---". So last Friday Brian and Timm Cooper came to my house and installed, took photos, and bs'ed the day away. I got to watch, paint, learn! To see photos and read the story see my blog; www.poppageno.blogspot.com gene
