Re: painted calipers??

if you have the tools to remove the calipers than go for it. they make paint just for brake calipers. you need to use that. or you could just take the wheel off and tape everything off really good. just make sure you clean the calipers really good with brake parts cleaner

Re: painted calipers??

They look good, just make sure when you have to replace your brakes you take it somewhere that will take care when doing it...otherwise they will end up chipped up like Kyle's are. The place he's been taking the car for brake work just flopped the calipers here and there and there are a ton of chips now.
