From rusty to shiny red calipers
Four step guide to getting a great set of shiny red calipers for your loved Alfa;
1) Clean off rust and any flaky material with wire brush.
2) Clean off area with brake cleaner.
3) Mask off
4) Apply two coats of Halfords Red Caliper paint (with a brush, not spray can version). Dry in between coats with a hairdryer to save time.
See the transformation below (took me about 45 mins per wheel).
