Finally got around to getting my calipers painted

I got all the extra paint off with some elbow grease and what was on the side came of when I applied the brakes

when you swap the brake lines consider doing a complete flush and fill of your entire brake system...it's a good time to upgrade to 5.1 fluid. i did and couldn't be happier for when i'm in high braking situations and the boiling point counts.

What kind of black do you want? Like a matte? Or glossy?

What do you guys think?
I took my brakes off just to be a bit more thorough.
Looks good.

Tanks bro! I was also kinda iffy about the color and was thinking just red but I went for it and im glad I did! only problem was how cold it was outside and it was windy. Paint didnt want to stick on the first two coats but by the fourth they were looking good. Then the wind kept messing up the newspaper but its so much easier to actually put newspaper than taking the brakes off.

Ya! Painting is tricky in the wind. Should post some pics of your whole car with the calipers done.
