Bought silver break caliper paint and break parts cleaner fluid. Do I have to take the break pads off? Never done that! Can I use a wire brush on the drill instead of steel wool? If paint gets under the mask on the break surface can I clean it off? Guess I should be going to the tech section for these questions. If someone wants to bother maybe a PM would be in order.

I painted mine with the calipers on...just removed the tire. I'm sure you can do a better job by taking the calipers off but mine turned out fine.

Thanks Yes it is lowered, I have full Mazdaspeed suspension as well as a flywheel.

Been looking alot at rims, I was thinking of getting ADR Cyphers in Gunmetal. But now I'm thinking of getting an exhaust or getting drilled/slotted rotors.

Thumbs up

Rx hawk, that looks great and without the aftermarket wheels. I must say that if I'd known about the light grey totone seat option ,I would never jumped on the rednblack seat combination......nice photos.
