    jack up car - place on stands for safety

    remove wheel

    clean up brake - maybe some light going over with wet n dry paper or wire brush - clean again

    grab a tin of yellow hammerite smooth paint - brush on in thin layers

    build up a few layers making sure its not clagged on everywhere lol

    once dried refit wheel - ideally leave it for about 24hrs +

    if u have drums on the back just paint these black - drums should NEVER be painted another colour- they always look naff

    HTH


    ** IF u dont feel confident - post in ur regional forum - im sure a local member will help you out - i would if u were local for copious amounts of tea n biscuits lor something else (depending on whos car it is!) hahaha

    Its easy! Take the caliper off and take it apart if you want a really good job, mine are hanging in my garden house drying just did them at the weekend in Silver so they are nice and bling bling!
