now iv painted my callipers

Hi Chaps
Back at it on the Boxster. Cleaned, sanded, masked, primed, top coated, applied new decals then 2 pack clear coated the callipers last night.

Came up brill, I think Iv put my decals on the wrong way up, Looking at the pics of my wheels before I started the driver side one defo read up the way but the others read down the way?

Anyways Im not fussed as they have came out ace.

Hardest bit it getting the wheels back on without chipping the fresh callipers.

here is what they look like now.

Next jobs, going in tonight for a new starter as its got the dreaded sticky bendix. Been like that since iv had it and only does the squeal about once every 6 or 7 starts but it always does it when people are about!! Its very embarrassing.

Also its going in on wednesday to have all the wheels powder coated fronts and backs.

thats it them till next summer.... unless I get round to changing to red seatbelt webbing.

I think my caliper decals all read left to right, oriented to the top of the caliper, so some point up and some point down once the calipers are installed. The one picture that shows the decal looks right to me.

Thanks Bruce, will look better once the wheels are done but I wont be able to take any credit for that as powder coating is not something I have the tools for
