The old owner put some clear ford scratch protectors round the locks. And underneith i could see some nasty rust growing.

I bought some tacky carbon fibre ones at halfords so this rust could be hidden for FITP. So i bit the bullet and peeled off the old ones........and it was mud and not rust!!! One of them looked rusted to bare metal but it was just an air gap!!! i was happy as larry :D

So i treated my calipers drums to some blue paint.

And i have a new amp and the ice works again.

All in all a damn good day :D
