    well i decided to do something with the calipers and hub,cant stand seeing the rust,so i got to them,was going to do the hub silver and calipers black,but liked the look of the silver when i got going.i think it sets off the wheels nicely,wot ya think.

    Seconded - I need to get off my bum and do mine (I was thinking red as a contrast with the silver car / wheels).

    Looks good. Did you prep them before spraying ?

    Just removed mine, had them chemically dipped, sandblasted and powder coated red They look lurrrrrrvely.

    i dont think so,i done the same about 15 years ago on my golf gti, and was fine,and these are brand new discs all round and 2 months old,so they wernt real bad,on the other hand the calipers are old,but we will see..
