  • brake caliper paint?

    one of the crazy previous owners have painted my callipers red!

    they just painted over the Original blue paint and after fitting new brake discs and pads the paint is chipped so i have bits of blue paint showing.

    i prefer them blue, and would like them as they left the factory!

    is there any where that can restore them to how they looked when new?
    It aint about how hard you hit............ its about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward!

              Set yourself out a bit of time when painting them. Thought I would have it done in a couple of hours, not lol. It takes a few coats of the Halfords blue to get an even coat. I've just done mine and it took all day. Check out my post 'very happy' in the members zafira section and you will see the colour they will turn out. Good luck. Also worth getting the paint prep wipes.

                I painted mine this week with Halfords blue and they have turned out better than I thought they would, as said though set a day 2 one side cos it does take a while .
