Watched a motoring program this evening where the guy buys and has cars restored then sells on for a profit.
One of the cars featured this evening was a CRX SiR. 16v DOHC V-TEC 160 bhp.

It was almost mint but they took the callipers to a specialist who restores them and paints them up. The first thing after cleaning and sandblasting was to dress up all the casting marks so once sprayed they had the same finish as the bonnet!  What was really interesting was they totally rebuild them with new seals and pistons. The cost for the four callipers was 750. You would struggle to buy Honda ones for that money.

They sold it for the best part of 3K profit.
