Default Rear Calliper Removal

So while I am waiting for some parts for my suspension upgrade, I thought I would repaint the Calipers. I know there are a few threads on removing the rear calliper, but here is one for reference...

Nice work spokes! Are you painting them black again? This is high on my list of things to do. I see you have a hoist. We could be best friends 😆

Yes, back to black. Lot of work cleaning, and prep. Be warned. Not to mention getting the callipers off. I cant imagine life without a lift if you want to DIY.

They look great! That's ok I get the Mrs to do all the tedious bits Haha! I'll definitely be getting a hoist, got a pit at work but it's hard to find time when I can use it.

And the final bit... sanding back the paint from the 'PORSCHE" emblem.



Double masking, 240 W&D and 800 to finish.
