Good stuff mate, can't believe how thin you say the discs are

Be sure about the type of piston the caliper has, it may need wound back into the caliper, generally they have notches in them for the tool so it should be obvious. A universal windback tool that attaches to a 1/2" ratchet can usually be bought from your local motor factors, it's only a few quid.

Sorry if you know this already but it can make the job much easier, getting a piston back in without it can be extremely difficult and taxing if it's a windback type.

Let us know how you get on.
