Hi Jaggu, sorry for my ignorance, if it made someone laugh, I am glad. I cleaned the disk with a clean cloth slightly dipped in oil, atleast the rust is removed. And the caliper which you are talking about is slightly golden colour on my vehicle, may be its already coated by the company. In brief I dont have to lose some extra calories by removing the tires, getting a paintbrush, a tin of paint and soil my back this weekend. Thanks for all the info. This is a lovely place to find what one wants and even dig a subject deeper than one actually wish.

Someone knows where I can pick up a can of Dupont paint? Local hardware shops dont seem to even know of the brand.

Paint options
1. enamel based paint(ICI,Nerolac)
2. NC paint Asian,ICI,Nerolac
3. 2K paint(Nerolac, Du Pont)

U will need around 500 ml of paint...
Enamel based paint n NC paint will cost u Rs 150 for 500 ml...
2K paint (Dupont) will cost u Rs 400-500...

For Enamel based paint u'll need Kerosene, NC paint will need NC thinner n 2k DuPont paint will need 2K thinner...

I think black will do....Red has become too common n flashy...

Hehe..goddy how can you be lost .. thats how i was directed to the place the first time.Read it slowly

Go down Cmh road.Towards ulsoor.
At the end of CMH there is a compulsary left turn towards Ulsoor police station.
Take that left.Drive for exactly 2metres(two) and take a left again into a narrow lane.
Basically trying to get you on the lane parallel to cmh.


Got it now??
