Yesterday, I painted all four calipers with the Duplicolor Caliper kit in red. The calipers are much more red and shine brighter than I thought they would. Here are a few comments:
Since the paint brush is a known kit weakness, I recrimped the bristles with a metal straightedge and hammer. I few bristles still fell out, but, the brush was not a problem.
Since I had the car totally lifted on jack stands, I should have done several other tasks while waiting for the paint to dry. Such as: change Trans fluid, change fuel filter, clean wheels, and adjust the chin spoiler. I had recently changed the oil/filter and the diff fluid last summer. I could have also regreased the caliper pins before painting (something I want to do anyway). But, I wasted a good chance to do several chores on one lift.
The kit does not say how to get the paint off your hands, but, does recommend gloves. I was able to rub the paint off my hands a few hours after painting. I Brushed on three coats in about 45 minutes. If I had another brush, I could have done some touchup on a few areas that I did not see during the painting time.
It is interesting how small the rear calipers are comparing them to the front two.
I'm very happy with the results. I'd score the Duplicolor kit a solid 'A' and my paint job a 'B-'.
The red is so bright that I wonder if I should have used the black paint.
