Just curious as to how you would paint them without taking them off and making sure paint didnt get into places that would allow them to not work properly. That being said how does one insure that covers dont come loose and fly off.
I think I will leave mine silver to march the rims.

They need to removed to be prepped correctly, overspray can be controlled with tape and paper.

They likely have some sort of set screw to hold them in place.

Well, even once painted the stock calipers don't look anywhere near as good as the covers. The covers mimic high-end 6(ish) piston performance/racing brake calipers, while the stock calipers on the Mustang are designed for acceptable performance, not good looks.

I do think that $200 for covers is extremely overpriced, but they do look loads better than merely painted OEM calipers, so...

I'm buying covers for mine since the last time I painted mine they got dirty and I couldn't exactly clean them because of the rims being in the way(drifter style) the paint pops but upon closer looks it still looks kinda cheesy.

I want to paint mine but I agree that in person the paint looks a bit cheap. G2 has a good paint that looks a bit better but a little pricy too. If the covers were cheaper I'd definitely consider them though.

I think the covers look cheesy. I think paint looks better. When I paint mine, they'll probably be black so should look fine

Paint is a hell of a lot better. I used dupli color. My stang was down for a couple weeks in the summer so I had plenty of prep time!

Painted mine, while on the car. Over spray only got on the K-member, easily removed with rubbing alcohol. Used engine enamel, it's shiny but not dull and still looks good today.

Also looks great for intakes. The engine bay isn't really that dirty it was dark when I took the pic. It's dirty but not that bad.

Not bad. I removed mine & cleaned/scrubbed them with brake cleaner and a wire brush and put like 5 - 6 coats I think. Let them dry a couple days

When I painted mine I sprayed in a cup. Then took foam paint brush to brush on. Used Qtips for tight spots. No taping off. I also bought engine paint. More of selection at advance, $6.99 a can. Good up to 500 degrees.

Personal preference

I got the covers because I personally like the way they look and the fact that now I get way less brake dust on my wheels. (Especially the right front one)

Painting them would also look good if the calipers were not so butt ugly to begin with. The rough texture of the calipers hold the paint great but also holds the brake dust and makes it hard to keep the painted calipers clean and spiffy.
For myself, I like my very expensive caliper covers.

I did use "LOCKTITE" on the studs that hold my covers on to my caliper. Although they do have locking nuts.

I agree, up close the covers look better, good thought on Locktite, have to remember to use some whenever I can afford covers, lol.

Not to mention AM has clearance on the gloss black 3.7 ones. I'm looking into those. its read bad reviews as far as securing them. How did you go about it? I agree on the cleaning though. I didn't want to take my wheels off every two weeks to clean my brakes

It was soooo easy a caveman could do it.

I'm not the greatest mechanic in the world but It was not very hard to figure out installing these covers. There is a good video on AM on installing these.
Jack up front of car with my floor jack. Take off wheels and clean them. Put covers on and do not over tighten the clips because you do not want to twist the studs off of the red covers.(I used LOCKTITE) and just snugged the nuts down. Put wheel back on. Spin it to see if any rubbing. (NO RUBBING HERE) Jack up one side of the rear. I use a 4X4 block of wood and jack on the frame rail. Do other side and your done. Other then putting the wheel back on because my wheels weigh A ton. It was a very EASY installation.

Torque the wheels to 100 Ft Pounds If you don't have a Torque wrench go to Lowes and buy one or borrow one off of A friend. After you drive about fifty miles or so you will need to check the lugnut torque again.

I think the Black one's would look great and they are on sale.

Anything you do still looks better then the ugliest calipers on any car ever made. What the heck was Ford thinking putting those ugly calipers on a beautiful car like the Mustang.

I paid $199 when I bought mine. After I installed them AM had them on sale for $179 (Always just my luck)

Oh Well, It happens to me all the time when I buy something.

Ronnie

They are powder coated aluminum The clips are spring steel. They are very well manufactured and flawless.

If I didn't buy them I probably would have lost the money in Las Vegas when I go to the S.E.M.A. show at the end of the month.

Seriously, I seen them at the American Muscle show so I knew exactly what I was getting.

Those are the ones I'm getting. And they seem legit as far as looks. I've had the painted calipers. Looks good for a little while then they start to get dirty. And I could get the junk off

I think the Black covers will look better on your car then the red one's. They will match your black trim and be great. Even on sale don't forget to put in the discount code. That should take them down to around $141.00 or so.

You do have 18 inch wheels don't you?

The cover look more high-end then the painted calipers! Also I heard the cover help keep brake dust off the rims. I do agree that they're ridiculously priced!

Note pics of both above easy to see which one looks better! Besides the cover are supposed to help with brake dust! Everyone taste is different!

Easy

Covers look fake but cover very very ugly calipers

***************OR*********************

Paint the very very ugly calipers and they look great. (That is if you do not drive the car) at first. Paint looks good but calipers are still very ugly.

****************** OR****************************

Buy a nice set of Brembo or wellwood brakes for a whole lot more then the covers cost.

I guess it ain't so easy after all.
Yes it is : Apparently the brakes run cooler with the covers then without them:
http://www.streetfire.net/video/mgp-...eat_699615.htm

I didn't even think about this added feature when I bought mine.
