    If you paint the calipers I think a how to with step by step is needed! :-D

    I'm really undecided what to do with the brakes. ( I have started a post looking for suggestions)

    What do you think. Red or Black with silver edges and hub bit?

    Red hammerite will liven up the callipers

    But will it look a bit stupid with the small rear calipers?

    I'm new to detailing, but Mark (BroTek) sorted me out with some Anglewax products.

    2 bucket wash with some poor boys shampoo that I had kicking around.
    Wheels cleaned with revelation, rinsed. Then cleaned with Bilberry wheel cleaned. Then sealed with Bilberry wheel wax
    Then a dry followed with Anglewax QED
    Glass cleaned with Auto Glym glass polish
    H2GO on the windows
    Then tyres dressed with Merguiars high gloss tyre gel.

    Tomorrow depending on the weather clean the inside 😎

    How was the wheel wax? used the cleaner but not the wax and could do with some more.

    looks good mate! My callipers are also needing some kind of refurb or upgrade. I dont think red is a good idea though. Black would be better unless you are upgrading to brembos or the likes then red would be ok

    Cheers. Totally agree with you on the colour. Lots of people told me to go red but I always thought, unless they have >4 pots then they'd look quite chavy IMO.
