    Got the red Hammerite out today and gave the calipers the once over. Not bad. Think they look nice behind the black wheels.

    Think i saw your thread. Did you take them off to paint them? Looks a lot better job than mine. I just stuffed the brush in there i could, trying not to get it on the disk or sliders.

    Cheers, no i just left them on the car but i took a loooong time lol! I used a really tiny brush to get into all the hard to reach places. It was quite relaxing to be honest lol, just sat out in the sun and did it.

    Going to top mine up i think in a couple of weeks. See if i can get them even more glossy. Fill in any patches that war a bit ropy. I found that by the time i got to the last caliper, i'd got a good painting method. Typical.
