i like it bro...although i recommend you pain the center hubs of your front wheels either silver or chrome to make it match with the rest of the wheel...in my OPINION only the caliper should be painted

i like it, though. very nice job. thumbsup

yeah, i just left it on and covered everything else, it took like 10 min per drum...they were soooo easy...its the calipers that suc, had to take em off, take the rotor off(which comes right off without a fight after the caliper) i just couldnt do it any other way w/ the calipers..they have to come off for it to be a decent job

hey what kind of paint should i use to paint my engine plastics, i have some blue left over from the brake calipers spray can. i like the color and its kinda cool if the calipers match the engine plastics i think. but is there some other kind of paint that should be used for under the Hood applications? confused
