    Default Hub painted and Calipers cleaned up

    Well i had to take the front discs off to find out what was causing the rubbing/squeaking got that fixed so decided to paint the inner of the disc same colour as the alloys and gave everything else a good clean looks ok for now ...not sure if i should paint the caliper silver also ...maybe if Badback reads this he could do the necessaries

    Its a local paint store i know the guy that runs it quite well and hes very helpful ..ive told him about the reaction and he thinks it could be the clear lacquer ...i dont think they have a website as such as they are very old fashioned they dont deal with switch or cheques yet
