May give it till summer and try it. Thinking red may not be the best colour for rising blue roc though.... Perhaps gold?

If you need a picture guide on how to paint your brake calipers then i suggest you don't even bother buying a paint brush!

Andy is being as helpful as ever I see... :lol:

I was clearing out my flickr account and deleted these pics to make way for others. To be honest, although Andy is being his usual tactless self, he is right, it really is a simple as taking your wheel off and painting them. If you have a steady hand, just go for it, if not buy some masking tape. :thumbup:
