Red caliper covers

Installed red caliper covers on my 14 gray convertible. They are from CJ. They really stand out with the black wheels. Only about one hour install.

thanks, hey were 199. I am to lazy to paint them. To do a good job you would have to take them apart . Mask off everything, paint. To much time involved. They have different colors. I remember white and black also.

I have a 2006 Roush stage 3 mustang with 14" 2-piece front rotors. My question is can the disc part of the 2 piece rotor be replaced, or do I have to get a whole new 2-piece rotor which will cost me about $400.00 each? I'm looking for a cheaper 2-piece 14" rotor that is equivalent to the Roush brand. Any suggestions? This is what I have now...

Dude....you attempted to correct it and you spelled it wrong as well. You spelled it caliber. It's not a hand gun.

I was being nice when I corrected him. You just responded and made yourself look like an idiot for no reason. Dont get mad at me because you cant follow the thread correctly. Stop responding like a child.

take your nose out of my thread. No one ask you to correct the spelling. This is not a spelling bee. Had it been i would not have entered. I was just letting those interested in seeing what i did. I do not need your 2 cents. Nor do i want your 2 cents. And i am oldenough to be your daddy or may be you grandfather.

Whoa now grandpa! I think he was just trying to help you out. I know I'd feel like an idiot if I was running around talking to people about my "caliburs/calibers". I would appreciate someone letting me know what it's really called.

That is a good idea though. Buy the covers and just paint them instead of painting the actual calipers. They should market some unpainted covers for that purpose, if they don't already.


I'm so lazy, I got a wild hair twitching one day and decided I was gonna grind my calipers smooth and paint them like a metallic gunmetal and after seeing how hard it was to grind them while they were still on the car, I decided to F it and just paint them. Then, after seeing how hard it was to paint them, I said, F that and left only my rear calipers painted and my front calipers are still unpainted. I know, shame on me.

If u wanna get technical, removing the calipers and powdercoating them is the correct way to do it and will be laborious and expensive... I'm a perfectionist and would not risk painting them on the car and missing spots, and getting overspray on my car... Caliper covers are a excellent compromise and some may talk crap that they're fake... I've had mine over 2 years and love them
