As would I normally.... but then my OCD kicks in and I donít stop.... as much I am enjoying the A8, itís a daily workhorse to be used... itís to be maintained and improved but itís not a restoration.

I sat looking at all 4 brake calipers, debating.... conjugating, battling with my inner demons.... the voices telling me that they are just a strip, shot blast, repaint and rebuild away from being perfect.... itís like a drug..... but it is a slippery slope and the A8 is my daily....

All my cars and bikes are classed in the feminine.... as a she, but once there they need cosseting and making perfect.... hence itís my A8.... not a she....

but doesnít stop me clearing the years of crud, and maintaining and repairing.... itís not a restoration

100% agree crusty discs really let down prestige cars. I think I will get the calipers done so will ask my mate if he can do the other bits too.
