    Default Painted my calipers today (Pics)

    I finally got round to painting my calipers this afternoon, i have been wanting to do it for ages! Here are the before and after shots.


    I used Halfords Blue Caliper paint. I think the colour is great, easy to apply and there is enough in the tin to do about 5 cars!! I gave mine 2 coats.

    I didn't even think on that to be honest lol, but now you have mentioned it....it would have looked good!! Never mind, if i ever get bored of the blue i can change them to yellow to match the bilsteins!
