Painted rear caliper

Decided to paint my rear caliper this weekend. They need to match my Rotora Big brake kit that is coming soon.

Used Dupli Color Red Caliper spraypaint.

looks awesome and it will match the BBK up front very well. It's next on my to do list:

- Rotora BBK
- GTS rear-disc conversion

spineyes Oh My god... what you done?????
Ok.. Guys, you gone and painted your break pads too...
You realise that when ur breaks are gona need changing, the pins are gona get scraped and the pads will be black..You're gona have to touch up...
I did mine this weekend. Pics coming soon so watch out.. I took everything apart and painted just the calipers all round, took me all weekend as i did all calipers, front and back. Was a little complicated, but with the supervision of my pops and sheer determination, i did it good... has attracted attention from other celica drivers. The guys at work think it's cool ... girls rule !!!! thumbsup

changing the brakes after you've painted them like that takes like 3 seconds, spray a little NCBrake cleaner and whamo.

Plus, if you are doing your own brakes, you can buy another can of paint and repaint them with the pads out.

Very nice... I did it the easy way, but I'm going to touch them up when I get my Rotora slotted & drilled back rotors.
