    Default Calipers painted mostly!!

    I've been busy today. I decided to get up and tackle my calipers. I have them a good rub down and used plenty of brake cleaner and set to painting. I managed to get 2 coats on each one but i think I'm going to give them another coat in a week or so's time.

    I've got plenty of pics of the front 2, i managed to get the offside rear caliper painted (2nd coat just on) and then it decided to **** it down to i had to stop it there.

    Once i've done a third coat on them all and actually painted the last one then i've got some "Vauxhall" transfers to go on them .
