Already bought the high temp paint from Halfords and decals from ebay and was motivated.
As it happened a mate wanted a second opinion on a Z3 (like I know what to look for on a BMW ) so I rushed it a bit but they turned out ok. When I put the decals on I'll complete the picky set and post them up.
Easy job, tools needed; axel stands as it's quicker to do two wheels at a go, drill and wire brush attachment, sponge sanding pads, brake cleaner and pre paint wipes, 1/2" brush, safety glasses if you're not a four eyes like me. I did buy a heat gun but it was hot anyway and paint dries pretty quick.
Handy stuff; thinners to get the paint off arms, swarfega or wet wipes (liberated from the downstairs loo) and clingfilm to stop brush drying out between 40 min coats.
I may tackle the rear calipers soon as they are a faded red but what colour are they supposed to be on the V6? - my twinny ones are black and look the same size?
Edit, and masking tape for yer nipples and abs sensor leads.
