I painted my calipers today...

and they came out pretty damn good, very impressed. For 17.46 tax included... can't beat it.

I just got my back right tire fixed today, ran into 2 nails... tire didn't lose any air pressure or anything, just so happened i noticed them.

The 300 dollar red calipers? I bet they were 2 or 4 Piston calipers though. Which would stop 100000x better than the 94-98 single piston ones.

Re: I painted my calipers today...

See, I just bought a brand new brake system like.... 3 days ago. The calipers were painted silver already, but barely showed cuz of the chrome rim... so i went with red. but yea... 17 bux, and 2 hours of your time. 8)

The box says wait 2hours for you to put the wheel on... the paint is dryed in 10 min.... cured in about... ohhhhh 8 hours. so i painted a caliper put the wheel on, moved on to the next. they give u enough paint in the kit to last about 30 cars to.

White probably is a bad idea...

Ever notice how bad brake dust gets on your wheels? Image on a caliper...

Re: I painted my calipers today...

The kind of paint i used is a type of ceramic paint, suggested to be used on calipers... it is supposedly brake dust resistant. it comes in white/black/red/blue/silver (don't know why you'd go silver), yellow, and one other color i believe. Autozone was almost out of them all when I got mine.
