Put in the front slam panel cut this out to fit then fiberglass it


A layer of filler to get it 100%

The fake calipers re-stickered with Lambo stickers and re-lacquered

The brackets on the rear of the caliper i sprayed them with heat resistant paint

The disk sprayed with heat resistant paint just waiting to finish the middle insert and spray that black

Very nice - But why have you painted the discs? Even if it is heat resistant, The first time you hit the brakes the pad friction will strip the paint of the face of the disc...
