    My new astra H CDTi SRi 150 arrives 2moro! YAY.. very excited. and i want to start modding right away! first on the agenda is painting the brake calipers.. do i have to take them off to paint them? or can i just take off the wheel and paint? also can anybody point me in the direction of the right paint?

    hello mate,

    there are a few ways to do it

    either spray paint them with a Foliatec caliper painting kit which includes wirebrush for cleaning the calipers and the paints

    or the easyer way which i did was a tin of Hammerite Straight to metal paint and i brushed it on,

    its lasted about a year and still looks ok and there was no chance of overspraying onto the disks etc

    hammerite can be easily found in halfords or any carmaster and foliatec can be had from Demontweeks or ebay
    G t c

    soon!
