Finally got round to painting the front calipers whilst I had the brakes apart to change the pads and discs. I think they have come out well. I also repainted the mirror bases last week and pleased with the result

Before


After


Gone is the bubbly aluminium


And one of the car from above


Finally getting the car sorted just got to sort out the traction control issue now.

I took the mirrors off and took 3 days to finish, waiting for the paint to cure and rain to go away. The calipers I took apart as I was changing the discs but I didn't remove them from the flexible hose. Took ages with the wire brush to get all the rust and rubbish off. but the paint was dry in an hour especially in the sun yesterday.

Well done Brian, :ymapplause: far better than my efforts up-to-date, they look like new. You've set me a benchmark to achieve!!! ^:)^
Will see them at Silverstone :)
