Looks good. What shade of bronze paint did you use on the wheels?

Wheel colour is Fiat 750 Marciano or something like that goes a bit gold in the sun. Need powder coating really as the brakes have eaten into the paint in no time. Rotors are also on ther last legs, them ds3000 have eaten thediscs alive, my car was black/orange down the sides during winter due to the amount of material coming off the brakes

Default New brakes required

So after 12 months of daily driving with the AP set up I need new discs and pads. The ds3000 that I had have completely eaten the discs. Iv bought some ds2500 withgodspeed replacement rotors. Hopefully these pads will be a bit easier on the discs

New rotors and pads fitted today. Didn’t realise that the pads need machining to suit the large discs but soon sorted using die grinder

Old pads and rotors at the end of their life


Can see the shape of old v new pads

Couple of hours and all finished.

Line scribed onto pads before using die grinder toshape the pads
