EL calipers were alloy as well. (well at least mine were, but that could've been because it was a hybrid)

I did the ones on my EL matt black. Hid the rust and didn't stand out (stock EL brakes are nothing to show off).

My new ones already came painted red.

Looks good , Would it br easier to take thealipers off before painting to save on the masking or are they too hard to take off and put back on again?


Cheers

Scary huh.

Front pads alone I've priced to $907 from Ford.

Guess it's good they're lasting me so much longer than the pads and rotors on my EL would. I'd be counting my blessings getting 10,000K out of a set of pads, and 30,000 out of a set of DBA rotors (stock rotors would only last 10,000)

Mate I feel for ya.....That's first degree highway robbery.

The prices I've heard for FPV spare parts lately has certainly put me off ever wanting to buy an FPV vehicle

Yeah, don't buy through Ford, instead the Oz Brembo importer, and they're $380 a front set.
