    Hubs and Calipers

    Hi Guys,

    I have a A3 2010 2.0 TDI S-Line which the calipers and hubs are starting to rust fronts more than the backs.

    Anybody know someone who can repaint these for me?

    I'm based in Surrey Junction 9 M25.

    Thanks
    Ben

    Easy enough to do it yourself mate.

    Get car jacked up, scrub them with a wire brush and give them a good clean, get some Hammerite/high temp paint on them, jobs a good 'un.

    Taken from my ride thread - its an easy job to do mate just preparation and then go for it! Take you a couple of hours but worth it and the spray paint and lacquer doesn't cost anything more than £20

    Sand / wire brush them down, masking them up, spraying them red (3 coats) and then applied 3 coats of lacquer and it gives an amazing finish. Also because of the lacquer these will last a long time, easy to clean and wont flake off.

    A little bit of over spray on the disc, but after driving and braking this comes off and is no longer there. Now this is all dry I will be painting the hubs and discs in silver to get rid of the rusted look and make it look much fresher.
