    Did mine blue. Used hammerite smooth and it went on well and looks the dogz danglies in my opinion, then again I am biased!! I have done the plastic covers under the bonnet the same to match, also fitted blue harness pads and blue interior lights.

    Hammerite is fine but I used foliatec caliper paint which is like a plastic coating comes with cleaner for the claiper and should do two cars if you mix it sparingly. The pic of my wheel above was painted 2 n' half years ago and still looks really good (that picture was taken end of last month).

    have to agree with cyb i used the foliatac caliper paint its a bit more expensive but worth it imo . but as many folks have said go for red graeme. sorry about the pic its was my kerbed alloy
