    Hi all

    I am going to change my discs and pads on my A6, seeing as i have 18" alloys and the calipers are a bit /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/swear.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/thumbsdown.gif, can anyone recommend a good caliper paint that dries quickly???

    I've used the two part epoxy paint from Halfrauds and ignored most of the instructions - just make sure there clean and you don't need to wait 24 hours before driving. The paint was getting hard enough after an hour or two to put the wheels back on carefully.
