    As some of you may know, I have a pair of used AMG C32 brake calipers. Now without going into a very long story, is there anyone who does brake caliper refurbishment/repainting that people have used in the past.

    Bearing in mind they are AMG brakes it has the letter across the front of the calipers.

    Also, how simple is it to repaint the calipers myself, would I need to dismantle the caliper completely to spray all the separate bits?

    Have decided after much deliberation and research on different forums, that £195 for caliper painting is pretty much a no brainer considering VHT paint and decals will set me back a princely sum of £18.

    Thanks for all who contributed.

    Mods please can you close this thread as solved.

    Ta very muchly.
