Ok, last year no more than a week or so after I got my car, I bought some Caliper paint for it 'cause I really wanted to make my first modification the easiest.
Well, I went to Walmart & got this Dupli*Color garbage:
It sure looked tempting. It was the perfect shade of yellow which matched the Celica's yellow color...
...but as soon as I opened it, it looked more like a schoolbus yellow or divided highway yellow than Celica yellow.
Either way, I applied it & it would do for now, as it's at least a SHADE of yellow. I followed the instructions EXACTLY as indicated & even gave it an extra coat or two...
...well, I drove my car through winter because I don't have a beater...
...and I just gave my car its first real spring cleaning, detailing the car inside & out myself. Upon washing the calipers, I noticed cracks in one of them, and pretty soon, when spraying it... it was chipping off in pretty big pieces!
Now I got a caliper with a lotta chipped paint coming off & I probably could scratch it all off with east! What a piece of CRAP
! Caliper paint is supposed to hold & hold good... this didn't do jack sh*t.
Basically, my question:
Does anyone know where I can get some good Caliper Paint and/or what a good brand is? I now know that Dupli-Color is just plain garbage. The color is decieving on the outside of the package & the quality is also horrible.
