Hello, everyone.
This is the second part of the Carbon-Ceramic brake system installation progress on Rolls-Royce Cullinan.

In this article, we will look at how the end runout test of the brake rotors was carried out, installing the front 10-piston calipers and 4-piston calipers on the rear axle + parking brake calipers, and also photos of the finished work.

In the first step after installing the brake discs, we checked the end runout - (It is necessary to make sure that the brake discs are installed correctly, with no mistakes, and no steering wheel beat during the ride.)

Everything is ready for caliper installation and we started to install the front 10-piston calipers from Akebono. The calipers are made in bright orange with a black Rolls-Royce logo, the calipers are perfectly harmonized with the black color of the car and its interior, as the interior is also made in orange.

The front axle is ready and we proceeded to the rear axle, it was a little more difficult since we still had to install an additional parking brake caliper.

So the main steps were taken, Checked the operation of the parking brake, and checked the operation of ceramic brake pads.
We connect the diagnostic and pull all air out from the brake system.
In principle, you can install rims and go for a test drive. Vossen R22 rims are also glossy black.

On this, our project came to the end, then we got out on the German highway and checked the operation of the brake system, accelerated up to 150-180 km per hour, and smoothly slowed down 30-40 percent of the power of pressing the brake pedal, adapting the brake system to regular work.
