    Does painting brake callipers affect warranty?

    Hi all ! If I were to paint my brake callipers would this affect my warranty should I need to make a claim for any work to be undertaken or should I wait until warranty expires as my van is on a 19 plate.

    Making Brakes Look Pretty

    Hello How have you made your brakes look pretty, I'm after some pretty discs and brakes for front and rear. No point in spending 3k on forge brakes as shes not a racing van. However would really appreciate any help with pretty disc and pads for front and rear that dont cost thousands of pounds.

    Brake Caliper Bolt Torque Value?

    I am wanting to paint my brake calipers while they are new and clean. To do this job I will want to remove the brake pads, Caliper & hanger (not as far as disconnecting the hose though). Can anyone tell me what the correct torque settings will be upon re-assembly? Thanks.
