    Default Urgent help needed on calipers

    Hey guys, basically ive started painting my calipers on a nice day to aid the drying time and im really unsure if i should or shouldnt paint the centre section of the caliper
    the bit with the white writing on it,
    am i right to just leave it as it is, or is it ok to paint it red, there was a bit of grease on the lugs which i thought might have been for access so im tempted to just leave it black

    any input would be great guys, thanks a bunch,
    and any other sections i should NOT paint?

    Pics of the finished job will be up later... with some luck

    Don't worry about it, not the end of the world painting the BACK of the pad. Just try not to get it on the disc face or the sides of the pad too much.
