    Default Wheels/calipers in progress...

    Thanks to vectra1.9cdti im now the proud owner of 4 bk999's

    Calipers are getting painted slowly, having to do one at a time as my drive is gravel and I dont trust axle stands on their own!

    Shiny wheels:


    Front caliper with one coat (with my gf's kittens basket that ive been sitting in to do the painting, lol):



    Old alloy with red caliper (no clip I know... Need to work out how to get this on without removing my new paint!):

    It better look nice, im covered in paint! Tis a bit too fiddly for my liking tbh! The red is very bright tho, might look better when they're a bit dirtier, either that or I'll be painting them black next sat! lol

    Looks like its gonna rain, GRRR!

    you'll never get the clip on without scratching the paint, but just get them on and touch up the paint afterwards, it's the only way.

    n.b. make sure you leave a tiny amount of paint and hardener at the end to touch up with
