Hey Toni, if you have a decent picture showing your wheels, body colour and calipers I could do a quick Photoshop job for you to see how the purple would look if you like?
Isn't there another company who make purple calipers? D2 or K Sport maybe?
I think it could look good as purple and yellow are complimentary colours, it's just getting the right colour purple that's important.

My wheels are currently black, the purple I have in mind is the same as my cam covers. Hang on will see about a pic.

You hope! Half my problem is once we started taking bits off other bits started to look a bit yuk, so we took them off and eventually the engine ended up on the floor.

Other possibility is black I suppose, and I bring out the 'AP' in yellow.

Well chaps the decision is made.

Brake calipers are going to be yellow, if we can match EV1.
If we can't they are going to be black, with 'AP' bought out in yellow.

(passed £4K this week on this project thus far)

I think the calipers would look nice in yellow with the 'AP' in black. The other way around is how the AP Racing Formula kits come (or red caliper with white writing)..

Yep I know. I was half wondering about doing the car 100% stock, but I think either way on the calipers would look good.

Mine isn't an underseal it's a full blown restoration.
Rogue are doing a cracking job.

I think Magic on here does an underseal if that's what you want.

Thanks Toni and great car worth every penny your spending on it

And yes we offer a full undersealing service where we gring back to metal on all accessable areas and seal on top.

Done quite a few R32's R33's R34's and R35's from guys on the forum

Drop me a PM or give me a call in the week if you want.

Well chaps, the good news is my brakes are done, and the calipers will be EV1 so will look good under the black TE37s I think!

Bad news - I think I need to replace the following...



Just don't know how to refurbish this as a unit. Anyone done anything similar?

I did mine as mine looked similar. I just took it all apart and used a wire brush attachment on a drill to get rid of the surface rust. I then brushed Kurust all over then painted the pumps and cylinders in smooth Hammerite. It looked as good as new.
