    Right... i need a kick up the **** with this one...
    When i finaly decided on what wheels and colour i was going for i promised myself i would freshen up the brakes
    I have Brembo calipers with grooved discs but they need freshening up... here are a couple of pictures to help people visualise the car...

    Im thinking i will be painting these at home ( i have a spare pair to fit while i do )
    Im sure ive read people used Hammerite spray on the fronts?
    I was going to use hammerite smooth paint on the rear calipers.
    Is there a better option?
    Also ... do i stay red? or maybe change.
    Brembo logo or porsche ??

    Please help. as after reading what people have done i tend to pull my finger out.

    I have used smoothrite satin black on mine and it has lasted well... colour wise then I think thats a personal thing tbh... red is generic but maybe yellow?

    I'll second Porsche decals with your wheels Paul. If you've got a set to put on whilst you're doing them then I'd definitely get them powder coated, stick the decals on and then get them lacquered. They'll look perfect and will last for ages. Colour is a personal choice so try a few colours before you get them powder coated, I reckon off white with black logo would look good on your car but they'd probably end up a dirty grey after a couple of drives......

    I was looking at a set of white powder coated porsche calipers, with black porsche logos, for sale on edition and reckon they would look sexy on Noggys but not sure about brake dust covering them quickly.

    Saying that you have dark wheels and I reckon with silver wheels they would work best.
