Car: 1991 VW Golf Mk2 1.8 Driver

Colour: Black

Where you can see the brakes on any car, then painting them will help improve the looks. Well painting them red will anyway!

Having obtained a set of TSW Venom alloy wheels for this car, we could not possibly of fitted them without first painting the front brake calipers and the rear drums. With such alloys as these there is no avoiding the fact that the brakes would be clearly visible, and we did not want the rusty brakes on display.

The brakes were very simply wire brushed & scraped clean of dirt and rust and then brush painted with red smooth Hammerite, using 2 coats. None of this mucking about with expensive painted brake caliper kits, we just simply use Hammerite every time.

As you can see the end results speak for themselves.

Painting the rear drums makes a vast improvement to the look of the rear brakes on this car.

The painted front brake calipers look good, and to the untrained eye, people may even think you have some kind of upgraded brakes fitted, when all you have done is paint them!
