Calipers

hey ive got a White T-Jet GP had it for about a month now looking to do a few mods. Lowered, tints etc

Just wondering if anybodys done anything like this?

cgi.ebay.co.uk/Fiat-Grande-Punto-Abarth-Panda-Brake-Caliper-Cover-Kit-/310231498234?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM& hash=item483b3cfdfa#ht_5419wt_1137


Looks pretty simple and takes out the standard paint the callipers for the same money.

Not only that, I would expect some problems with brake heat dissipation, as they cover the calipers and part of the disc from the colder air.

I would expect it to get pretty hot under there under some heavy braking.

Also what happens if the heat affects the glue and they come unstuck, lots of noise, plastic shards maybe screwing your brakes and wheel for all I know. Just a thought

Re: Calipers

Just get them painted, I have heard of people from the states powdercoating calipers but that could be expensive.
