I spend 3 or 4 hours, and you can drive the car after you finished, just make sure that the calipers are well dry, that is all.

Maybe that's true with some paint, but with G2 brake paint you have to let it dry for one day without driving.

i used high temp paint...took about 3 hours doing two wheels at a time. I was able to drive it about 30 minutes after putting the last spray on...but just to be safe i would try not to drive it that quickly...i had an emergency so i had no choice but to just go. Nothing got messed up tho...brakes look sweet

Don't paint your drums, it looks silly.


To have played and laughed with enthusiasm
and sung with exultation
To know even one life has breathed easier
This is to have succeeded.

exactly what he said except if you want to use a primer it takes an 15 min for the primer to dry and most caliper paint takes an hour. so i would say 4 hours. thats how long it took me to do mine and same time to do caleb's.

So you can use either high temp paint or caliper paint? And priming is not an issue?

depends, if you want to have really good results use a primer. some paints have a primer in them already such as the fusion paints. i would however not reccomend this paint. use brake caliper paint. works great!

Just paint it, and let it sit over night.
