PDad did a great job on the car....of course. But just think he has to wash and was it before the races...tough job, but someone has to do it.

Did you follow Freddie'* steps to paint the calipers or do a different process? I would like to do mine but a day seems like a short time unless you were able to get all four wheels off of the car at the same time and just start at the fiat wheel and keep doing step one to all wheels then step two and so on until complete. In my head it makes sense because as you are waiting for the paint to dry you are working on another wheel. A better use of time.
