Calliper Painting Help
Im going to paint my callipers red, and was wondering if it would look better to paint with a brush and just leave the medal clip part inside the calliper alone (silver), or use spray paint and just spray everythign red. The how to in the forums says to use a paint brush, but if you guys had pictures or opinions on what would look better it would help me out

thx

When you use a brush, it looks bad, and it will take longer.

Just spray, and you don't really even have to mask anything off.

how do you tape off all those little metal peices you dont paint because i bought the red caliper dupli color kit. will it not look as good since it's a brush on?
