Painted Calipers and Drums!

Well as many of you know my brakes and calipers were a weird looking baby blue, at first I thought it was going to be dark blue but it came out very wrong lol. Aright but today I finally finished getting the calipers finished, both are painted black, I can't find any b4 pics but if I do I'll put em up.

5 Pics Are to Follow, DO NOT POST until all are up. OK...thank you.

for like $4 painting calipers is awesome.

my rotors were brown and rusty, my calipers were grey and awful. a can of hot red engine enamel left them glossy and beautiful.

excellent work...

^^Yeah i had my dad take apart the calipers because hes more careful and just knows more about that, while i took apart the drums and did those. I forgot exactly what the name of the paint was, but you can find it at Pep Boys for about 3$-4$, and that one can was more than enough to do all drums/calipers 2 coats and have some left over. thumbsup
