Nels loving the epoxy flooring that is one of my to do lists.
After the discs and pads were changed, time to adjust the handbrake cable and bleed the brakes

I did it just after the garage was built, and it was empty.
Problem is, the tyres sometimes stick to it. Just have to go over those areas.
Having it done makes it much easier to clean up etc.
Well worth doing, but in the summer so it dries faster.
That made me determined to do mine what products/brand did you use pal?
If I remember correctly, it was International Garage Floor Paint. I think there's a part tin in the cellar.
Let me get back to you.
Just make sure the surface is clean and not powdery, or use a primer/stabiliser first.
@Ichiban, here you go...
Thanks buddy,need to scarp off and clean the concerte in my garage before for the paint. We all know it's the preparation which makes a good finish and not slapping on paint and hoping for the best.
Excellent work Nels, you appear to have quite the eye for perfection when servicing
Not sure if it's a blessing or a curse.
That's partly why I had to paint the calipers. Couldn't have them corroding and looking a mess.
When I took the wheels off, the back of the alloys looked like this...
... but not for long. They were scrubbed, re-sealed and waxed before they went back on.
Then again, you already know I'm a nutter !
If you think that's bad mate, you should see the ones on my '07, the callipers are rusted to hell and the wheels are a mess. Definitely going to be cleaning/spraying/sealing my callipers too if I don't end up uprating them, and the alloys are getting a full refurb!
To me, those wheels don't even look that bad
When I was changing the rear discs, I noticed a pinhead sized droplet of rusty water on the side of the rear box of the exhaust.
When I wiped it away, there was a tiny hole.
Didn't need to see anymore and I wasn't going to wait until she started blowing.
A phone call to HH, and she was booked in for a new exhaust.
For my car, it is the middle and rear boxes in one complete unit.
Had that fitted today and all is well with my baby.
There's a brief report of the visit below...
