Don't know about the rest but i know you can buy special pens like tipex pens to fill in the writing on tyres, can't remember where though, i think it was in a motorbike magazine.plum25 said:I'm planning on painting my brake calipers, and tyres today. Sounds weird that, on the tyres i mean the writing on the tyre wall as it's now faded. What paint should i use, and any tips on painting?
Oh right nice mate cheers, I'll have a look in Wilco and Halfords.tommihayes said:Don't know about the rest but i know you can buy special pens like tipex pens to fill in the writing on tyres, can't remember where though, i think it was in a motorbike magazine.
cheers very much chap. I will try tippex, if it doesn't work no harms done! One person i spoke to actually used hammerite for the calipers, good or bad idea?Big Tony said:I know people used tippex years ago but I don't know about now. For the calipers you need to get high temperature paint, you will find it next to the hammerite in halfords etc.
Cheers Tone, how much money is the paint?Big Tony said:I think it will just burn off, your looking at massive amounts of heat produced so you will need the high temperature stuff. The tins sometimes have VHT (Very High Temperature) in big letters on them. You will get them in a fair selection of colours and it can also be used on your manifold.
