    Looks good Mark. When are you going to paint the rest of the car Blue - you know you want to;)

    Thought you had them already painted blue Mark or is this just a refresh. They do look good might contplate doing mine that colour but don't want to be a copycat. I have some metalic gunmetal paint but not sure now tbh.:bored:

    Thanks Ian, they were painted 2 years ago but were faded.

    The halfords paint is good.

    Blue woud suit your car too.

    I think that all paints only last for a while.

    I think the brake dust doesn't help.

    Looks good Mark but you need to drive it more and then the braking surface will be nice and shiny as well rather than the marks where it's been standing? :happy: :(

    Yes, it needs a good drive.
