Very nice Nick, would like similar on mine, was worried with warranties etc. In relation to the brakes but off topic, whats with the funny pressed metal extensions round the edge of the brake discs, are they trying to make them look bigger?

heat resistant paint, i forgot what the proper name is called. just took the wheels off, used a small brush and started painting on the caliper lol. never took it off. the paint is still looking good, although not as shiny anymore as brake dust has made it dirty but can still tell its red.

I quite like the idea of coloured calipers, but that paint looks a strange colour... off red...?
