Looks good Paul. Yellow calipers on recent Porsches denote carbon ceramic discs, is there somethinng you'd like to tell us? :LOL::LOL::LOL:

Nice work paul. I think yellow calipers would look good with black, not on mine as I am aiming at a 'black and white photo' look, but they would look good. It's surprising how long a five minute job takes though eh?
