Calipers painted...

But I was lazy and only did the fronts. Took a quick look at the rear, and they looked like they'd take about 3 weeks to clean

I've also swapped wheels recently, so I think this is the first pics of those too (but they're filthy, as is the car).

A few piccles:









As you can see my left front is flat as a pancake. Hit a pothole and it went bang. Here's me trying in vain to use the Honda tyre gunk, but turns out there was a rupture in the sidewall:

Nope, just painted them on the car. I'm far too lazy to take them off and do it properly, lol.

Thanks guys. Got the paint from ebay, supposed to be Focus RS green, but looks a little lighter to me. I personally wanted something darker, but I'm happy enough with the way it's turned out.

For now anyways, lol, can always repaint them at a later date. I need to do the rears anyways.
