    Vehicle : Vectra c SRI Facelift

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 1.9 CDTI 150

    Year : 2006

    Default Painting calipers

    I picked up my first Vauxhall vectra(1.9cdti sri 150) lst night from a fellow forum member and all the mods that it currently has are exactly what i want so theres nothing to do to it apart from maybe painting the calipers.

    Is it possable to do it without having to take the calliper off...in other words on the car?

    Thanks

    Take the wheels off, clean calipers with alloy wheel cleaner, Hammerite and small brush, couple of hours, job done. Done mine about 2 years ago and just had to do a little touching up the other week. Still looking good

    Just a little tip, take the spring clip off before you paint it, then put it back when the caliper is dry or it will stick.
