    Smile Calliper Questions

    Hey guys,

    Just a couple of quick questions..
    Got a bit of time coming up and I quite fancy painting my callipers. Now I have heard that hammerite is the best paint to use. How do you guys go about it? do you just remove the wheel and paint around with them in place or do you take it all off and paint it separately?
    Also can I just paint straight on or is there any preparation that needs doing first?

    Of course any tips would be appreciated

    Cheers,
    Adam
