very surprising, there wasnt a spot of rust on them, and they were very clean, didnt even have to wipe em down!

was gonna go with silver but spotted GOLD!

just looked at pic and it looks like my cars on stilts!

should have scrubbed em with a wire brush or some wool

helps to 'key' the surface ;)

i had some wire wool ready to do it but it really didnt need it, wasnt even slippery! used hammerite to paint it so should stick well

i used spray hammerite, good tip for when using hammerite is to place the tin in hot water for few mins and it makes it easier to paint

surprisingly easy, i removed the caliper, just 2 bolts at back, then covered bits i didnt want sprayin with a cloth, make sure you dont spray piston though!

one brake took 15mins including taking the wheel off!

drys in bout 15 mins then put 2nd coat on, good thing bout hammerite is few mins later its dry enough to drive
