Progress...rear calipers

Ok, we've made a lot more progress on the car since the last update.

First up is the brakes. After buying the 33 GT-R rear Brembo's second hand I thought it was a good idea to have them rebuilt as the seals looked like they had seen better days. Racebrakes in Yarraville took care of that for me, and soon had them looking as good as new.



Next up was to get them matching the front calipers colour wise, as they were looking pretty tatty and tired.
When I bought them:

Sanded for painting:

First coat:

Paint used:


Really happy with how they've come up. They don't match the fronts completely, but it's a race car so I'm not phased. Should do the job quite nicely!
