    I've decided to start this thread & share my current and any future mods & games around my Accord :Wink:

    Here's most recent upgrade - ATR Nissin twin pot front calipers together with HEL Performance Brakelines, Black Diamond 12 Grooved front brake discs & Hawk HPS Ferro-Carbon front brake pads:

    Yeah, they look like a brand new! :Wink: It's basically superb prep cleaning job made them look like a fresh new. Big thanks to my friend who offered he'll take calipers to his friend who has got access to some "cool" machine, which cleaned the surface till shiny fresh metal, not leaving any sign of any rust at all! I don't even know exactly what kind of unit is that... :Unknown: He said it's some boxed unit, where his friend put caliper inside behind the glass, then gets his hands into gloves so he can hold or rotate or whatever those calipers and then using some high pressure air and glass or sand shaver rips of all the rust untill fresh metal is reached. I think similar units are used in a fleet to clean metal surface of vessels.

    I am not a fan of that paint it rubbish when you doing a brake service and if you use brake cleaner the paint just come off as if it water colour. I used that on my callipers and won't be using it again.

    Sorry to be bearer of bad news mate. Even multiple coats this paint comes off on contact of a strong alcohol based fluid.
