  • wee bit painting..

    my calipers have been bugging me for a while now cos they seem to have lost there shine.

    So today i gave them a quick clean up and paint, while i was doing that i did the rear axle and RARB too. Also gave the inside of the wheels a clay and polish.

    comments welcome..

                    No, just right from the tin mate. Just took my time and was carefull with the brush.

                      Nice work Rhino, but to help keep them shiny dont use Bilberry Wheel Cleaner or cover them when washing

                        Really? i use Bilberry, is that dulling them down?
                        I dilute it down 1 part bilberry 4 part water or more.

                          Yep the bilberry dulls it just chuck a bag over the caliper before spraying the bilberry on the wheels then remove the bag once the wheel has been rinsed off
