So i went to paint my calipers yesterday and i was doing them red. BUUUUUUT, when i finished and saw them in the sunlight it was almost orange :oops: So i was kinda upset about that. So this morning i got up, scraped all the old paint off and painted them a nice simple glossy black. It looks great now and im happy so all is well. :D I refused to drive around with orange calipers. :D

I wanted to do them red b/c i saw them on a green stang and it looked awesome! But since it messed up i just decided on good ole black.

I had mine painted gloss black too. Then I painted it again after I realized you couldn't tell the difference between it and an assload of brake dust. :headbang:

does the high-temp paint that you use for brake calipers work on drums? b/c mine are rusty and gross so i am gonna paint them semi-gloss black. do you need to use primer?

Oh Hell Erick $ 42 for a paint kit that is insane. I am sure the kit is nice but that is absolutely outrageous. What is it magic pant or something. With all the high temp paint out there for $ 5 a can I just cannot justify the cost of that kit
