Brake Calliper & Drum Paint Color

19 April 2014 - 09:25 AM

I'm thinking of painting my brakes today seen as the weathers nice for a change

Think I'm definitely going to go black on the rear drums
But don't know whether to go gloss or satin black?

And also what colour do you guys think would look good on the front?
Was debating halfords blue brake paint but not sure what the exact colour would look like with my car being a sort of blue colour

The car looks standard from the outside, so I don't want to go for the boy racer thing of bright red, I want something subtle that will actually look nice on the car

Would like to hear your opinions on what you guys think would look best!

Focus Mk2.5 Wheel Centre Caps

08 April 2014 - 10:10 AM

Annoyingly one of my wheel centre caps seems to have fallen out whilst I was driving

Any one got an idea how much ford charge for a new one?
Seen them for about a fiver on eBay , not wanting to spend a lot but it's one of them things that really annoys me because I know it's missing

Thanks guys

Focus Mk2.5 Brake Pad Question

31 March 2014 - 05:19 PM

Not sure if this is in the correct section

But I was cleaning my wheels today and thought I'd have a look at the brake pads to see how much life they had left in them

I noticed that the pads had a sort of slant on them which meant that only around half of the area of the pad was actually pressing against the disc when the brakes are applied
They have plenty of life left in them but seems strange

This is the same on both sides but can't see any reason for why they would be like this, would seem like a really inefficient way for ford to make them

Just wondering if anyone could say whether this is the same on there's or whether it would be worth me replacing the pads if there not meant to be like this
