You can get proper Caliper paint in various colours made by Folitec. They sell it at Halfrauds.
Or you can use smooth Hamerite. (that is what I did).

I'll go with the Hammerite I can get discount on that!!!!

Whilst the wheels are off, what's best to 'coat' them with to stop the brake dust sticking to them?

I must admit, I think it looks horrible.. Going for a P1 style front mate, which in all honesty is mental because there's hardly any difference!! Its just where the front idcators are there's one blue bit rather than the two that I've got!!

Must be mental!! :x :x :x :x

What you think? You agree?
