    Brake Caliper Paint Kit

    I'm half toying with the idea of painting the calipers on my sportback (once it arrives!!!) Do you REALLY have to take the calipers off to do it (definitely wouldn't have the confidence to do that) or could you do a decent job without having to take them off??

    You'd probably want to get one of those guys who paints little nerdy miniatures for games like Warhammer on board. They paint with 1 hair brushes and similar tomfoolery. Otherwise you'd better have been one of those kids who managed to stay within the lines during colouring-in time....

    No need to take them off, just use a bit of masking tape and a little care.
    Did mine black and got the Audi rings from the TT shop and they look very classy, hate to see corroding calipers, did the hubs with smoothrite and the whole lot looks great.
