Today I had the afternoon to myself so after watching a few episodes of Family Guy, American Dad and Scrubs I got off my bum and decided to dedicate some time to my CTR.
I had planned to tidy up the alloys by giving them a good cleaning and also re-painting my brake calipers, as they were looking a little tired. Also thought I would give a shot at painting the Type and R different colours.
So onto some pics....
Starting off with a fairly dirty wheel and brakes (although you can't see).
So off with the wheel!
Looking a little jaded and tired so had to clean it up first (no photos) and give it a base layer of paint. While that was drying took the time to clean the wheel:
Then another layer of red before chancing my luck on trying to do the Type in Black... why is it you have a stable hand right up until the moment you touch what you are painting?! Anyway:
Content enough with that I though may as well do the R in white:
I actually wasn't that happy with that, and may still clear over it with black in the future.
Return the wheel:
And lower the car again!
That actually took a little longer that I expected (I blame cleaning the wheel) so I will have to do the other one tomorrow. I will also take a shot from distance with the car back down to give some perspective.
