I thought I would have a go myself after phoning a couple of firms who did not seem bothered and the results are pretty good.

If anyone is close enough to notice any small blemish in that paintwork then they are too close. Nice job.

Did you remove or paint in situ?
What sort of surface preparation?

Cheers!

There was no paint to remove just brake dust. I used brake and clutch cleaner sand paper and a wire brush on the battery drill. I just cleaned it all and applied 4 coats of paint. By the time the second caliper was painted the first one is dry enough to recoat.

The imperfections are actually a reflection of the bright sunlight.
