Painted Brakes - PICS!
I used the G2 Paint Caliper System: comes with the paint/brake cleaner/stir stick/brush/directions and also has a lifetime guarantee against cracking, peeling, etc. etc.

Without further ado, the long anticipated pics.. grin

As a matter of fact, it's the exact same wheel gap as the stock 15" from toyota. The angle of the picture is just distorting the image... here's another for comparison:

Definitely do the rears. You'll be sorry if you don't, trust me.

It took me about 1/2 hour to jack it up and put it on jack stands, then about 1/2 to clean all 4 brakes. Another hour to paint (2 coats) and probably another hour to put everything back so total time about 3 hours, give or take.

Plus, you have to let the paint cure for 24 hours before you can drive it afterwards.

Hey, Did you have to take off the brake caliburs or did you just spray with it on the wheels still?

Just want to know grin

Yes, gloss. Very shiny when you look at them, but not too much bling-bling grin

Definitely do the rears. You'll be sorry if you don't, trust me.

It took me about 1/2 hour to jack it up and put it on jack stands, then about 1/2 to clean all 4 brakes. Another hour to paint (2 coats) and probably another hour to put everything back so total time about 3 hours, give or take.

Plus, you have to let the paint cure for 24 hours before you can drive it afterwards.

I see what you mean. Well, if you don't mind spending another $40 you could always paint the front red and the rear black smile

Actually, what I did was just put my head down on the ground and look underneath the sideskirt. You'll be able to see the "groove" where the jack fits. It's probably 6" - 1' back from the wheel well, on the front. Then, once it was jacked up pretty high, I placed the jack stand on the rectangular "tube" that runs the length of the car - there's one on either side - it's part of the frame, and can withstand the weight of the car just fine.

Hope that helps rice Any other questions, just ask wave

Just want to know grin


This paint goes on with a brush - I was pretty careful, so I didn't even bother taping off anything.

The brake CLEANER however goes on as a spray, and if you aren't careful, you can get that on your paint, and that's bad because it is some strong stuff! So, when cleaning, make sure you're working in an area with no wind, and if you're still worried, you might wanna tape off the fenders.

Their model V doesn't fit the celica anyway.. it only comes in a 4X100 bolt pattern.

However, Rev DOES make some wheels that are black with a polished lip.. Billy has some, in fact smile
