Painted my Brembos

I ordered the G2 caliper paint and Brembo decals from Flea Bay. It went on fairly easy, two coats. I tried to mask off the silver end bolts, but they just didn't turn out well, so I painted over them. I may try and find some small round silver overlays for them.

The problem with the G2 is that once you mix the accelerator into the paint it starts to harden after 4-6 hours. Due to other reasons, I didn't have time to do the rears, so I had to order another batch. I should be able to do the rears on Friday.

It's a little pricey, but good stuff. If you get it on your hands or anything else, it's hard to get off, so mask carefully.



Had the camera on the wrong setting, so that's why it's blue.

Amazing! I have mine ready to go as well. Just need time to do them. How many coats did you put on them? I have the duplicolor kit, I hope it's comparable to the g2 kit.

Cool!, they recommend only two coats. I assume so you'll have enough for all four.

Did you do it all the way around the caliper? Would it be enough for all four?

I painted everything but the very back. I should have had enough for all four. A little goes a long way.

Finally painted the rears. I painted the pads also because I wanted more of a solid look:

Thanks. With the G2, there are a bunch of colors, but only one red, which I ordered.

Looks nice... But I thought painting the pad would effectively glue it to the caliper. These are floating pads I thought. I could be wrong. Often am.

Well there's no difference in braking and no noise. I'll let you know if things change.

Nope stock caliper and rotor.

The cheap upgrade is to get the steeda DBA rotor upgrade kit (13")... Then paint your existing rear caliper and upgrade the rear pad (hawk HPS for example).

More expensive would be a full rear caliper upgrade... But that is like 2 grand.
