    Painter Calipers!!

    Hey People,

    I finally have managed to paint my calipers, after along wait for the weather to be up to standards. After thinking about all the different colours that I could have painted them I thought that I would go for the black as I thought it would be nice and subtle and a good change from what they were standard.

    Went out and got myself some coarse sand paper and also some smooth black hammerite paint.

    Any way I'll let the pictures do the talking.

    Finished!

    Looks like you've done a good job, but a bit plain for my liking.
