Painted Calipers

Started to paint my calipers early this morning. Unfortunately the Humidity kicked up high so my paint still hasn't dried yet and it's been 8 hours!!! Lesson learned, paint around 70 degree.

At least they came out well! I love the look of red calibers and clean wheels. Nice work!

Thanks guys, couldn't have done it without the paint from AM , much better than the spray paint. Now just have to wait for a cooler day and do the rears.

All you have to do is jack up your stang and take the tires off and spray them with some caliper paint. Easiest thing you can do honestly! Just put some newspaper behind the calipers to that you don't get paint on anything behind them. Takes an hour maybe a little bit more if you've never jacked your car up before or took the tires off.

Real simple!

Even though what sluder said is very true, I did not use the spray paint, I used the actual paint and brushed the paint on. Yes the spray paint is much easier and you can leave everything on but it's a little flatter on the color depending on what color you use. I wanted a bright red and so I took the whole caliper off and painted them individually. If you have never changed your brake pads before then this could be alittle difficult to do. It is also a well known fact that the actual paint is better than the spray paint when it comes to quality.

Haha yeah I was lazy :p I wanted todo it that way but having to bleed the break fluid and get the bubbles out then use a C clamp to get my break pads back on for just painted calipers was touch for me but I'm sure yours like sick. If you got on your hands and knees you can tell I sprayed mine myself :p ill post a pic
Later. I got flat black rims now so that green pops amazingly.

Looks good. I like the red on it. I thought about painting mine but I'm kind of lazy and dont really have a good work space to jack the car up and take off the wheels, etc.
