I did mine by just sanding the calipers and used about 2-3 coats of the paint

I painted mine yellow.. it looks sick and is pretty easy. Gives some extra eye candy looks to the wheel area.

Spray some paint onto a plastic bag and use a very flat paint brush. One that is letter width and go Over the tops of the letters. Since they are raised it's pretty easy. Just take your time with it!

I painted my old v6 but it didn't have the raised part.
I wish they had redfire in high heat. ill probably end up with black and red letters.

Does the high temperature paint work just as good as the Duplicolor Caliper paint?

My 05 GT is Sonic Blue. I want to paint mine since I can't afford an upgrade. Honest opinion, would bright red look good with the blue? If not, what are some other high-contrast options? I want something that pops, and black or silver won't cut it.

Thanks!!

The Duplicolor paint instructions say to paint when the temp is from 55-75 degrees. Is there a problem if the temperature drops into the 30's or 40's at night? I'm ready to paint, but I don't know it the weather is too cold.

If you have a heater use it. Set it by the caliper and let that go. Spray it on and then set up the heater to dry it. Me and my friend did his and used a hair dryer! Haha
