Since I have the basic TT brake calipers in the end I went for Black.
The hubs wanted painting silver so did both at the same time.
So here are some picture for anyone wanting to know what simple Black looks like with a bit of a twist :wink:

From a distance.

I did not take the wheels of. I used Hammerite smooth.
I cut the Handel of the 1" brush to do the hubs. Used a another small brush to do the calipers. Left them over night and gave them a second coat the next morning.
I bought a very small artist brush and used the silver paint to very carefully paint the retaining clips/bars if that is what they are called you can see clearly the silver bars in the photos. That was the tricky bit.

@ Phill, I was going with Black or silver, red was a step to far for my simple calipers.

Red just don't do it for me on a silver car but I sure some people like it

Also I did take my wheels off lol it's a lot easier

I like it Dave. Looks superb.
I'm glad you didn't go red though. It's subtle - and clean - with the black. :wink:

I can't believe you're such lazy sod as to have not taken the wheels off though!
