AM sells a Dupli-color caliper kit which includes cleaners also. I haven't tried it, but I am considering it.

How easy is it to paint them? How easy is it to clean them?

Re: Painting caliber what color?

Its easy to do- I painted the calipers on my black car using the kit from Eastwood's. After 3 years, the paint still looks good.

Re: Painting caliber what color?

My calipers are red, but I've seen yellow and they look great too. Especially on a car of your color.

That'll look good and clean! I was trying out the plasti dip and did my badges and the faux gas cap in back.... turned out good!

I'm the kind of guy that gets bored at work and watched YouTube ideas of mods that im going to to. I've started thinking about painting my calipers and in a lot old videos they say/show to steam clean the calipers before painting, that the paint gets a much better stick. Anyone do it? Not do it?

The kit comes with the caliber cleaner that's all i did is spray it on and use a toothbrush to clean it off and wiped it down and the one I did looks fine waiting on my next day off to do the others and the weather to get better
