You know how you have those rust and etc. on the Rotors. Is there a way to like clean them? I see rust and crap on my and would love to find a way to clean them to make it somewhat shiny again.

pep boys makes a brake parts cleaner thumbsup. also you can use like a brillow pad and after you spray the rotor and caliper with the cleaner you can get that nasty rust off the wheel hub. i think thats what it is called. works great

Took me uhh.. 5 hours. could only do 2 at a time.

I jsut used some APT Caliper paint from Autozone. couldnt find Dopi color anywhere local.

Used a wire brush and Brake cleaner to clean everything first

Thanks for the info.

You have a pic of the whole car from the side, that way we can see the painted calipers with the Rims.

Whoa crap, they look freaking awesome.

O yeah, stock GTS rims aren't bad IMO. They look pretty good for stock. I have the same shoes and am not planning on getting some Rims till a few years.

But yeah, nice job. I think I will be doing mine soon. Might be going for Black setup tho. Always wanted a Silver with Black tones.

Anyone seen a Celica with painted Black calipers?

yup, that's the one bad problem about spraying them, it's much easier to just paint them, but then again, more time consuming. but for the looks, hand painting is better than spray thumbsup
