Bradders told me how and it worked;)

Just a couple of quick pics of my newly refurbed rear calipers and hubs. Must say thanks to Bradders for giving me the confidence to have a go (he didnt ball his RX8 up so thought it cant be that hard)

Any comments about the brake dust on the alloys WILL be moderated


I will be doing the fronts when the GT goes in for its gear box thing so gonna get Lewis to take the calipers off for me when its ramped so I can do a proper jobbie on them (have already ordered the decals for them)
