The red brake calipers are a nice touch. I was thinking about doing my also, but I am thinking about going with blue.

So, I painted my brake calipers red today. In reading the manual, it mentions using a torque wrench to tighten the bolts to 100 ft. lbs. Unfortunately, I don't have a torque wrench. Is there any 'rule of thumb' that lets me know how tight that is? Or how tight is tight enough for wheel bolts?
