I've sanded the brakes a second time and now they're ready to be painted "Titan Silver".
No need to tell you that is took hours of labour to get them nice and smooth.
And believe me, this will be the last time i've done something like this.

Picture rear:










I'm also planning to have the outside of the brakediscs painted alswell.

The brakes are back on the car, everything is mounted again without making any scratches.
Now, the idea us to look which boomerangs give the best match to the complete setup; here a few pics of the complete carbon kevlar setup.





Here you have the black carbon boomerang. Personally, till now, I like this one best. The BERYLLIUM logo has a much nicer contrast on the black background.
























Considering the carbon kevlar plates, they certainly aren't overdone (I was a little afraid the opposite might've been the case).
Last week Saturday I already started to make a version of those plates in carbon. I finished 2 of them. I won't spend time on making 2 more, because I already know that I prefer the carbon kevlar look.

They look awesome. Great work. The black boomerang gives the best look imo. But how do they look with the wheels on. Looking forward to those pics

looks good, but I think the black carbon would look better, it would be less obvious. how about some pictures with the wheels on??
