    Finally got round to painting my calipers today, i have said im going to do this for a while now.

    i decided on blue and bought a tin of hammerite, smooth blue

    it took about 30-45mins with jakcing up and dropping the wheels off

    i cleaned the calipers up with a wire brush attachment for my dewalt then applied the hammerite
    before



    after




    And today i put my hard top on for the winter
    and gave the car a good wash, and as every one like pics on here. Here'a few for you all

    Firstly the products i used were:
    Megs gold class shampoo
    Bilberry on the wheels
    ag glass polish
    a coat of collinte 476s applied with a machine polisher all over including the windows (apart from windscreen) and wheels
    chemical guys new look trim gel on the rubber trim and tires
    megs ultimate detailer on the interior
    lexol leather cleaner and conditioner

    I like that blue colour - I was looking at blue brembo calliper covers on eBay last night and the blue colour looks really smart on your car

    i managed to get the HT on ebay shortly after i bought the car at the begging of the year, finding the same colour was a nightmare, so i had to settle for a diffrent colour
    the car is mystic blue and the ht is topaz blue but you cant tell the diffrence
