    Eek Calipers painted to match my axle stands!!!

    As mentioned above, decided to have a bash at painting my calipers.
    Only managed to get the fronts done as had family duties!!!
    Wasn't sure which colour to have with my Bamboo Green Veccy.
    Decided on yellow and while painting them I noticed how much of a similar colour the calipers are to my axle stands and trolley jack!!
    Anyway, take a look and let me know your thoughts.
    A few runs in the hammerite, but can only see up close, not too bad for a first attempt, imo.
    Gonna do the back on friday and have already ordered black Vaux decals for the calipers too.
    While I had the wheels off, decided to give them a clean inside and out.
    Car wash doesn't do a very good job on them. Hoping to catch the cleaning bug soon!!!

    cheers for the comments. I really like red and blue calipers, but didn't think they would suit the cars colour.

    Great job. Did you paint them in place or remove them. What did you use to clean.
