    Default Grooved discs n pads. The project begins!

    These came today so the project begins.......
    First job to paint the none contact parts to stop any unsightly rusting. I hope everything goes smoothly no stripped nuts or bolts etc.
    You know what it's like! That bloke called S0d who made his own law up might have something to say to that though.
    probably just jinxed it before I've even started. I bet you it rains, is that cup half empty .

    The tin is now open..............(Smoooottthhhh Hammerite silver, this should do the trick).

    More pics to follow.

    Yip that's them, looking good so far for the money.
    I'm doing a from start to finish project (Obviously with step by step pics) sooo just stay tuned and you'll see how it all transpires. I'll post my findings when complete. (I'm thinking by the end of the week due to work commitments). then I'll post a review when I've had them on for a week.

    I'll update as and when I do stuff.

    Excellent. A guide to fitting these would be fantastic. I've got them but I'm a tad worried about fitting them. I may just get a garage to do it.

    What you should of done first with the fronts is to stick them in a bowl of degreaser then put them under a hose pipe , you will be amazed at just how much crud comes out.

    Yeah I gave them a once over with a cloth and some white spirit before painting.
    I've not painted the face that sits against the wheel as its not seen, also this will have copper slip applied to it when fitted.
