Started to refurb the brembos

Thought I would start having a go repainting my tatty brembos. Well happy with my first attempt.

First I degreased the caliper. Used a toothbrush to get into the awkward bits. I then sanded it down using 320 grit paper. Cleaned it again. Then masked up. I then applied the vht gloss black caliper paint in light coats leaving each coat 10 minutes to dry. I probably applied 5 coats, but the last one I did very wet to get a smooth shiny finish. I then used a heat gun to bake it abit. I purchased the heat resistant brembo stickers off eBay. I have purchased a vht laquer to go over it all including the brembo sticker, but I am happy with the finish without. Just got to see if the sticker will last without a coat of laquer.

I used this paint. Really good paint.
