Recommended Posts

A very confused and mystified Alcoblog sits at the other end of your computer wondering what on Earth is the point? :huh:

Exactly - back to normal! I was planning to return to factory.

 

Before you waste you're money on that, I've got some magic beans to sell if you're interested :D

If its a lease car, its not yours, its basically criminal damage.

The way I read it im guessing the OP has already changed the colour of the calipers and now wants to return them to standard looking ones

I could be wrong though.

That's how I read it. But then wouldn't he/she already know how to have them painted from the first time?

Could it be the calipers came painted from new ,the paint has now burnt off and the op think they may be charged for them repainting so. Wants to have them done before it goes back ?

If the paint has come off the brake callipers get the lease company to get it sorted, after all it is their vehicle and not really your problem? Next time you lease look for a vehicle with cast brake callipers that don't need painting. I must admit I've not checked mine but I'm sure they are metal and not painted.

Rubbish. He's simply wanting to rectify damage done and put it back to standard to avoid charges. It's what is expected.

I can't believe the negative unnecessary comments on here. The guy has a lease car. He's obligated under the terms of his lease to return it in good condition, with some reasonable wear and tear.

 

He didn't ask any of you whether or not he should do it. He asked if you knew of anywhere that does it.
