That's a good job done Tony :thumbup: :thumbup:

I was wondering the same as Neil but you've answered that !

Checked mine whilst doing the bumpers at weekend, they are silver with no rust on either car, think they maybe sorted the rust problem out for the mk2 but I don't know for sure.

Must say you are putting the hours in and she is looking brilliant. :clap:

I always give my cars a bit of a brake tart up. Usually go for silver, although the calipers on my RCZ are matte black so maybe try a similar colour for the disc hubs.
After checking they aren't due for replacement soon first!

Believe it or not I went to a custom paint shop recently and they said that's the best way to do it :eusa-think: they reckon the pads remove the excess paint from the discs?

Yes they do. I'm never too fussy when doing it, and they always clean up after a few uses.

I'm not dissing it either way but I thought it would be a fire hazard with the heat. And the paint fusing to the pads would decrease functionality wouldn't it ? Either way it's not for me.

I was going to buy the Ligne S ones, for the red border, but they are silver. I saw these and thought I'd give them a go. If I dont like the yellow/green, I've still got the all black ones already :)
