I am a fan of braided hoses :handgestures-thumbup:

Hi MM / members.
I'm going for the brake upgrade this winter and wondered if its worth changing to braided hoses whilst I'm at it (was thinking of Autolinks Goodridge set). You seem to be fan of Braided so would seem a sensible decision whilst I'm doing the brake upgrade anyway. What do you reckon?

Also, has anyone gone to the effort of cleaning and spraying the calipers Red/Yellow/Blue? How does it look on an MX5? Appreciate this ids 100% personal choice but interested to hear what folk think. :think:

Cheers in advance,
Creepy.

Cheers for the advice MM. :text-thankyouyellow:

I'll add some calliper paint to the order...red or yellow should work well with the Black.
I like the idea of coloured braided hoses. I'll have a nose around for some.
