It's not actually a spray can. Well they give you a spray can so you can clean off the caliper. But that's it. And they actually give you paint and a paint brush. But the paint brush is so cheap it broke on me while I was washing it off lol.

Well done jleber123! Black was a good color choice too. It will stay looking cleaner for much longer than other colors. I'm not sure if you daily drive your Mustang, but any other color would be rough for a DD.

For anyone who's looking for caliber paint, here's a direct link to the kit that jleber123 used!

Sorry I didn't mean to put down any other colors. I was simply referring to cleaning off brake dust on a daily driver. You can absolutely maintain any color available, you just may have to wipe the calibers down a lot more often.
