Do some r5's have cable calipers or are they all hydraulic?

I phoned my brother and asked him to look at the calipers as I've just brough some goodridge hoses and he said he can't see any copper hoses just a cable going to them!! I thought the cable went to a cylinder then the rear brake hoses came off that? Maybe I'm wrong as ain't had a look my self

The rear flexi lines are not attached to the caliper, they are under the car , been a while but there may only be one rear hose, there are 2 flexi's on the front though.

The cable is for the handbrake.

There should be copper piping attached to the calipers obviously, they clip onto the rear beam.

The fronts are already goodridge stainless flexis!! I think I need to have a look myself and so do they goodridge replace the copper hoses to the calipers then? Think I should of looked into this before I jumped and brought them

No the Goodridge hoses replace the flexi hoses near the centre of the rear axle, you will see them quite clearly when under the car.
