U use a brush I wouldn't recommend using the supplied brush go get a few artist brushes. I didn't even tape mine off

Actually it dries in minutes. I painted the front then by time I was done with back it was dry enough for another coat. I did driver side first then passenger side. I put 6 coats on each and had plenty left over

you didn't tape anything off? Just sprayed away on the calipers?

I've gone with the G2 kit both times I painted my calipers and love the way they came out.

Yeah this is a great mod no doubt. I just highly recommend ya make sure those calipers are clean as can be before ya apply the paint WITH A BRUSH. The supplied brushes in some kits are hideous. I would pick yourself up some small artist brushes (flat not rounded). Will surely improve the application. Looks great OP.

In the process of doing my calipers, so should I CLEARCOAT or NO CLEARCOAT? Also should I tape off the part of the pad that shows?

Looks sharp, just curious if the gloss clearcoat they sell is a waste of time and money. Got the front tires off and cleaned the brakes last night, painting after work today. Looks better when the whole caliper is painted IMO. TY I also cleaned the wheel well, gonna spray inside with tire shine, also gonna spray the shock black.

I just used some spray paint that said brake caliper paint. I don't remember if it was gloss or not. I think it was like 7 or 8 dollars.

---------- Post added at 11:53 AM ---------- Previous post was at 11:48 AM ----------

And paint the whole caliper cover up the brake pads and rotors.

Take your time with prep, 4 coats on the fronts, 5 on the backs (they were older, took more to cover)
