nope left it on. got it at advance auto. for 14 bucks you get caliper cleaner, a brush to apply the paint, masking tape and a shit load of the caliper paint. i put several layers on each caliper (4), and i still have about the whole can of paint left. came out awesome!
hey same here, it realy does come with everything you need and comes out looking poweder coated, i did about 3 coats on mine and am thinking about doing a new coat every month or so for the hell of it (seeing how there's over 3/4 of the can left. [/color]
