    Thanks Jay.......i was nearly tempted as i had so much red left in painting the inside rims......but thought if it looked cr4p then i was stuck with it....i only thought about it as there was quite a bit of over spray on the inside when he refurbed them

    Thumbs up

    Nice looking wheels you're thinking about there, especially with the polished rim on them.

    When you painted the calipers did you have to take them off or can you paint them still connected? Did you have to degrease/clean them first too??

    Sorry for the slight wander off topic!!
