Dupli-Color Caliper Paint Mod 56K Beware

Hey guys! Just showing you guys my newest mod. Pretty simple but time consuming since I bought the Dupli-Color Caliper Paint that paints via brushes. Personally I think using the brush is soooo much easier that taking the calipers apart to spray paint. The paint dried INCREDIBILY fast and it looks awesome. Overall I will rate it a 7/10. The break dust cleaner can that was included in the package gave me a massive headache so beware wink. So I'm posting pictures now so enjoy!

I used the same paint and they are great. Try sanding them before you paint it. It looks 10x better. It will be smooth and glossy. It took me a good one hour of sand for each calipar but it's worth it. I put like three layers of paint.

yea sanding is always a good idea, I was in a rush and only had like 3 hrs for everything (including paint to dry) so I just wiped the brakes real good with a brush.

It's awesome thumbsup Yesterday somebody came up to me and said "damn, nice car", I said "Yep, it's stock too" rofl
