    I have a complete set of rear brakes from a Capri V6. These are 9" X 2 1/4" and are self adjusting. If anyone has a set of Mk1 GT brakes I am interested in doing a swap. Norm

    I think the "gold" zinc plating is called zinc chromate. Used a lot on German cars of the era, it stays shiny longer than the normal zinc plating, but looks worse when it does start to tarnish. I expect Ford didn't bother with it because it was more expensive.
