No have not used it before, but others have on the R which was my concern about how hot they can get...

I just used Hammerite on all my previous escapades except the R I used the Foliatec which was nice. The silver hammerite I used on 330 lasted years!

Are you going to try and smooth the casting marks?

I was debating it. I have blasted them with the aqua blaster that we have at work and they have come up ok to be fair.

Just need to replace the pistons and seals and then prime as they keep flash rusting lol

Treated myself to a new mask, my other works fine but this is just better...



It uses the same filters as the other mask, just transferred them across, this is better as it is more comfortable and protects my eyes too. Here is the old setup:



Modelled fabulously by myself:



Was very windy and wet this morning, so didn't go out there, however the wind died down a fair old bit so went out and got the colour dusted on:



And finished up:



The wind then picked up again and was making it difficult and I didn't want dust blowing onto the wet paint!

Tomorrow is my birthday and whilst it will be spent at home i don't know if I will go out to the garage to get them done or not. I did want to do a couple of small jobs today, but they're not worth getting soaked through. At least I can see light at the end of the brake rebuild now...

They will not be fitted this year, I want them to gas out before sealing and I don't fancy swapping it all over as a December job, even in the garage as it isn't insulated

They're looking great.

Curious about what 'Gas out' means as I've not heard the term previously - presumably it's an ageing / curing process so that the finish isn't compromised when going through heat cycles once fitted to the car..?

Hope the first week in the new job went well.

Not the heat cycles that are the issue, I plan on ceramic sealing them, there have been cases where blistering of paint occurs as there is some form of gas that needs to escape from the paint. Once it is sealed it cannot and blisters the paint.

The science behind it and the details/frequency i don't know, however no point in me risking anything as they won't go on the car for a fair while anyway

First week was good thanks, although I could happily retire
