I was looking at the rear calipers today, thinking "they look a bit naff compared to the MG 4-pots on the front" and the recent post about the Audis painted calipers got me wondering :idea: if anyone here has painted the rear calipers of the TF / F.

1. Is it possible to do without removing the caliper?
2. Is it expensive?
3. Most importantly, does it end up looking tacky? (Red is the obvious colour choice!)

If I end up going for it, pics will follow :)

Many people here have, me for one. I painted all mine, not having the AP's I didn't have red at the front to start. I painted mine red, then recently repainted them gold as they were looking a bit tatty. :)

You can get special 'caliper paint' or others use hammerite.
