    What sort of prep work did you have to do? Was it just as simple as cleaning them up with a wire brush? The calipers look good i'm thinking of doing mine when i put my Snowflakes back on.

    no mate I used them, you'll need to order some. the ones you want are from RS,
    654-6035. There are 14 so you will need a couple spare just in case. THIS wont change the colour of the display though. I didn't bother, if you want that doing you'll need to do some more research as I can't remember the part number. Let me know mate. I was only joking about the calipers!
