Rotor looks good! id spray the rotors hub section and the caliper silver (like mine). black hides in the shadows and you dont notice the brake set up.
Agree, silver looks good , especially with silver wheels, is noticeable but doesn't stand out as a contrast . Did the same with mine resonatly when I rebuilt brakes.

Hi
I did mine blue & silver, when l rebuilt my brakes. I have a vt commodore wagon.
That works with the silver/ polished wheels and white paint work.
Personally not so shore with EYY's paint work.
Looking at that second photo you did a superb job on them.

My latest purchase came with a set of hpc coated pacies and a single 3” exhaust. They’ll be going on my daily stato very shortly along with the car back. The hsv headers have cracked again and the twin system has seen better days. Need to replace the steering rack again so will probably tackle the exhaust at the same time.

Down the track I’d like twin 2.5 or twin 3”. Id probably adapt a vt-vz catback and make my own cat pipes. But that’s a while away yet - too many other projects on the go currently.

Good idea to do them while the rack is out, it's a nightmare otherwise.

How did you go with it? Did you need to lift the engine at all or just move the rack out of the way?
I had to lift the engine from the drivers side about an inch, you can just undo the engine mount and raise it slightly and that should be enough.

I still had the rack in place, just dropped out it's mounts to lower it down so you might be ok, but worst case it's not too bad.

I got the 5002 which are bigger diameter than normal. (Pretty sure that was the #)
I supported the engine up top and dropped the crossmember and steering to get drivers side in from the bottom.
Passenger side could have gone in 1 handed while blind folded.

Cheers guys. Shouldn’t be too difficult then.

Figured out what the leak actually was -the rack is fine. Firstly was ps return hose was loose. Second was the trans line made contact with the ps rack and had rubbed all the way through the pipe. Was leaking a ridiculous amount and the trans was slipping which was the main giveaway. Went from being fine and no leaks, to the Exxon Valdez in a matter of a couple of hours driving.

Fitted the new lines today, lucky I had a spare set here. Had to remove cat pipes, lower steering rack and lower the rear of the trans to access the fittings. Wasn’t that difficult and only took a couple of hours from start to finish. Exhaust will have to wait till after cup weekend when exams are over.

At least it’s driveable now.
