    Default Tidying Up the Discs

    Having painted my calipers a couple of months ago, I thougt i'd splash a little silver paint onto the edges and centre of the discs to tidy up their appearance as they show up through the flakes. I used smooth Hammerite, which I don't like as it goes tacky too quick, but thats only a monor niggle. Used a small brush to paint the pad clips in situ, as they would probably scuff up or chip if I took them off to paint. Looks tidier so i'm pleased with the result.






    and whilst the wheels were of my wife Gemma, who equally loves the Veccy, washed the wheels and sealed them with Chemical Guys Wheel Gaurd whilst looking after 2 little boys

    Put the Opel stickers on the calipers the other week, all part of my Opelising project which is nearly complete, just waiting on painted parts for front end.
