They have the kits at auto zone, pep boys, advance auto etc I'd look at those for sure. Something I've wanted to do myself

I got a friend who works at pep boys who ordered them for me. The ballasts and bulbs for fogs/headlights I payed $125. He gets a super good deal, I've had no problems with them either

I've gotten both of my caliper paint kits from G2. The blue ones held up great the past year that I've had them.

Did mine this past weekend. Just went to autozone and they had a kit called caliper paint kit. It is brush on. Which doesn't call for as much masking off. I liked it. But bought a better paint brush from Walmart for like 2 dollars.

Mine was 20 for the kit and 2 for a better brush. Deff worth 25. Made even the stock wheels look good. But the same day I painted mine. I changed wheels

How long did it take you? And did you take off the calipers to paint them?

Took about 3-4 hours. And no I didn't take them off. Using a brush instead of spray paint makes it easy to get everything (stuff you can see) without takin them off.
