    Finally got around to painting my Brake Calipers (Hammerite Smooth Black) Just need a suitable badge now to finish the fronts off.

    Seen some self adesive plastic black Sline badges (25mmx10mm) on ebay but dont think hot brakes and plastic will get on to well !

    Anybody got any ideas please ?? Would like sline but will settle for a small audi logo or a small S badge. Cheers guys.

    Nearly done now !! Black Calipers, Red and White Sline decals fitted. Just need a coat of laquer now to seal the decals to the caliper !! Will ordinary laquer behave ok with the heat or is there some stuff for brakes knocking about.
