    Default Calipers Painted









    They still need another cote, but I'm happy with how they look (and yes I know the wheels need cleaning!)

    Yes mate, cost me £22 to have the local tyre place get them off for me this morning. Only took them 20 minutes. Nice and easy to get off by myself now

    If you haven,t greased the hub where the wheels fit it would be a good idea so they come off easy next time. I see the garage has done it for you.

    Nice colour caliies ther m8 stand well,but the copper grease you've slapped a tad too much on the hub m8,hubs can get very hot under certain conditions ,might melt the grease leading to pad failure.

    That's not me, that is the tyre place. They greased them up for me.
