MTEC Discs + Mintex Pads + Painting Calipers [PICS]
As some of you may know, I ordered a set of MTEC drilled and grooved discs with Mintex pads as my brake pad warning light was getting annoying. Strangely enough, the pads seemed to have plenty of life in but turns out the circuit breaker is quite conservative on my original pads (not had a look at the Mintex ones yet).
With regards to painting the calipers, I ordered two of these kits in gloss black off ebay which are all high temperature grade for £24.99 delivered.

So far I have only primered them and sprayed the base coat as I am allowing sufficient time for the coats to cure. I was going to brush paint them after the base paint coat but not sure yet as I have the feeling it may leave brush marks and I am quite happy with the finish. The main part was separating the calipers and cleaning them up properly with a wire brush and a wire wheel on a cordless drill and plenty of brake cleaner!
No pictures of the base coat yet but will update this thread as I go along.
Not sure if I should spray the disc guards or not, as they appear to be powdercoated in black at the moment. I have cleaned them up and there are a few chips here and there but alot of the dirt is refusing to come off.
