Anyone know a decent place to source some red caliper lacquer (folia tec stuff i imagine). Tried Chesterfield & Derby Halfords, none in stock, same story at Motor World. Seems 20 is the going rate, was just neing a cheap skate & trying to avoid P&P!!

that folia tec stuff is shite. just use normal spray paint if you want a fancy colour, or smooth hammerite if you want a plain colour

wot i did with mine was take all the old paint off using paint stripper, lot better than just painting it over the top as it will probably flake off

hammerite is best, it is heat proof, or failing that halfords do their own caliper paint in 5 colours, i did mine in blue with this stuff, its 8.99

red back then...

silver now.

red paint was from savage where you have to mix a hardener with the paint. silver paint was hammerite.
if i was to do it again, it'll defo be hammerite as it is cheaper by almost half, and its heat proof and generally paints a little bit easier.
