    Default Caliper Paint

    Hi guys,

    Just thought I'd put up a thread about the Folia Tec caliper paint.......it's not a Vauxhall but you get the idea

    The paint comes with an aerosol cleaner a tin of paint and tin containing the hardener.

    All in all it seemed to work very well and when completed left a very bright finish, there is more than enough paint to do probably 2 or even 3 cars with multiple coats, this car (a Honda Civic Jordan) had 3 coats of paint, the only down side is that the car has to stand for 24hours before the wheels are fitted........so here are the pics: -

    Front



    Rear



    Both

    PS doing this without the use of axle stands allowing all 4 wheels to be removed at once must be a nightmare

    Yeah it does but that's what it says on the tin........so just to be on the safe side that's what it'll get.........I think it would probably apply if done in winter

    It's my son's car and he's on night shift so it's not a problem giving it the 24hours

    Hi David,

    Yes it has the V-Tec engine but as far as insurance goes it's a LOT cheaper than the Clio V6 so he's Mr Happy eh
