I fallow this Instruction

I made mine Silver and it cost me about
10 $ for caliper paint
5 $ for brake cleaner
3 $ for a brush

That's it !

I was thinking Red for my car but I think I going to paint them black...I'm sure any high temp paint will be ok...A couple of my buddys painted their calipers and it looks great...just make sure to paint your rotors while your at it. If you going to do it might as well do it right thumbsup Post pics when you get them done I'm sure we all would love to see it.

yah G2 is wonderful stuff .. getting a price around $40 shipped is good.. anything more thumbsdown

sometimes on eBay you might find it for less..

but might as well spend $40 for a great product than spending it on spray paint cause this stuff is shiny too grin
