Ok so i painted them yesterday and i'm just letting it sit at the shop for the night until i put everything back on. I put the driver's side together so you would get how it came out.
here's the drums painted
here's the drums with the wheel on.
it's a little blurry but you can see i missed a spot when i took the picture. I already went back and covered the celica emblem and painted black on the spot i missed.
here's the caliper with the wheel on, kinda blurry again because the cam was on slow shot
First i sanded down everything with of course a mask and gloves on because of the brake dust *remember safety first
* then i sprayed them down with Brake Leen brake cleaner. Kinda like Carb cleaner. It works magic, cut right through the rust so i can see metal again!!!
Then i took the drums off and painted those first, let them dry for 15 min, sprayed another coat, let them dry and sprayed another coat and let it sit out to dry for about an hour and a half.
I removed the brake calipers just because i didn't want to get paint on the rotor or have it spray onto the body. So i coated that 3 times in black, then got the template (which was made out of decal sticker material and melted
, you should get a cardboard material template) and sprayed on a coat. with the black on the caliper covered.
It took up a day of my life but hey, it looks a hell of a lot better than rusted brake calipers and rushed drums.
