    But f... me, how bright are those angels?????!!! You got them wired up to your local sub-station or something?
    Im not really into MV2's tbh, but my wheels are in very good condition and they are really easy to clean

    they are very bright and as i work in the sub-station they could well be lol

    I know it's cheating but i have to admit you guys do make it look easy

    Is it as simple as a pot of hammerite, how do you prep the callipers - sand down ???

    Depends what colour you go for. If you go for black like I did just use a wire brush, if you go for a bright colour your preparation and paint job needs to be more thorough. If you're a bit lazy, black every time lol.
