Managed to get my calipers painted today. Thinking orange for the accents colour ( badges, cyba scoops, big brake kit etc) but wanted to see if it suits before ordering it all. So calipers ae now very orange. Came out well.



Will add a m badge maybe. Will get some side profile tomorrow but left in garage to dry today.

Another rather expensive mod... £5 later and some bbs badges added. If I stick with orange I will re order re order these in cf/ orange. Bit cheeky I know but the bbs have gone to the back of the queue behind an exhaust and a bbk, so couldn't put up with the silver centres so a cheeky but cheap mod!




Gave it a good clean inc the wheel inners but no arch cleaning today so a couple of dirty coilovers shots.

Calipers look great.
Those wheels are lush.
I have to see this car in the flesh!!!
You'll have to wipe the drool off, though!

Read every page, and to be honest I'd have expected nothing less from you mate. The derv was spot on, and I'm loving what your doing to this one too. Very good taste, well done!

Thanks guys.

Some side shots ( sorry iPhone) of the orange calipers. What do you guys think? I'm rather keen, and may go with orange for the bbk, and the other bits?

Fecking beautiful mate, I was thinking all along there's something missing (even though it was looking super!) but you sir, have just hit the nail on the head!

Lovely looker Nick,the black wheels really show off the orange calipers,great job

Are you rolling the rear arches,those tyres must catch,surely?

Sit's very,very nicely though

im guessing the caliper colour is actually different to that of the tail lights, but in the photos it looks close enough to match, sets the black off really well.
the suspension has made a huge difference, great stance and looks awesome.

Thanks chaps. Funnily enough just got in a rear left is catching slightly, but only just. Don't think there's much to roll! Will have a look. Got a feeling it might be the mounting bracket towards the back, not the actual arch it self?

Calipers are orange, just poor iPhone pic make them look similar.

Looks great Nick.

How do you go about insurance, do you have to list every mod to them?

Yeah, you can stop ribbing me for the 4x4 stance now.

Think I've looked at them enough today to decide to go for it so will be ordering badges, mats, and negotiating cost of bbk immentantely. And painting my cyba scoops and getting my plenum ' tango'd'

Father in law popped in today with his vxr8. Be fun to put them head to head!




Think my stud conversion arrived today but missed the postie. Had my other conti fitted so contis all round. Garage virtually ground to a holt when I pulled up!

Looks great and come a long way!! I actually really like the orange calipers, stand out nice. I thought of painting mine too but keep thinking maybe I should leave it and wait to possibly get BBK one day.

Go for it. Really easy and took 2 hours. I'm planning on a bbk but did this to help decide what colour to go for with the calipers on the bbk. Yours cars mint btw!

Yeah, sprayed. About 2 hours. Masked ( roughly!) then primered, used heat gun to dry then another coat, then same for the orange. Not sure how long it will hold up but looks good for what I needed.

Thanks mate. I might do it...will wait a few months though just to see if I end up buying the bbk or not. How soon are you looking to get the bbk?
