Hi and welcome to civinfo.

You'll need to buy caliper paint, as it is heat resistant. Have a look in Halfords or better still on ebay.

Take a look at these threads.

Welsome to the site, I used silver Hammerite on my Silver ES.

Just prepare them well, a gud rub with meths is good and even a quick wire brush before that if they have a lot of corrosion or brake dust

These were the results...

I got the sticker from a fellow civonian at a meet (cheers robbo51) but I believe you can get them off ebay. Don't worry about the heat, it just seems to bake them on harder. As long as they are applied firmly you should be fine. Mine have been on for a good few months now and still look the same.

Just go easy on the pressure washing!
