Painted Calipers 2014 v6

Just spent the day painting the calipers on the mustang. As people have said on here before, "PREP IS EVERYTHING". I used a wire brush bit on a drill with a shop vac to grind them clean, soap and water, then brake cleaner pre paint spray. I didn't mask anything off but used a few small tip brushes to free hand it and everything came out perfect! Just take your time.

Looks good but FYI just for safety's sake invest in some jack stands

Great work on the caliper painting! The prep work you did will pay off, as the paint will stay on the calipers and their brackets for just about ever!

next step for you is to buy the GT rotors and GT caliper brackets. This allows you to have the larger front rotors as the GT's do (back rotors on the V6 and GT's are the same). The front calipers are the same also with the GT's and V6.

You'd then only have to paint the new GT caliper bracket after installing it and the GT rotors.

Look at Roush's web site (Or Ebay, they sell low mileage GT rotor take offs, the front caliper brackets, and calipers (even though you don't need the calipers) for cheap.

I use an area close to the front. Looks like the frame, and then the LCA frame piece
