    Engine : 1.8 VVT

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 130k

    Default 1 out of 4 Calipers painted (two tone)

    Decided to get this started.

    Can I say a big thanks to Happy Postie aka Khalid for the vauxhall decals which I think finish them off perfectly.

    Just waiting for the spring clip to dry then its all back together again.

    Thanks to soulman for giving me the idea to paint the edge of the disks. Saw it on one of his posts.

    Let me know what you think good or bad.
