I'm thinking of painting my calipers white now that I got some decent rims... any proper procedure on how to do it? is it also possible to paint the hub portion of the rotors, they look kinda rusty, figure they'd look nice white. Anybody have pics? thanks guys...

PS. that stupid atts light still comes on, grrr.

i just sprayed a lot of Brak-leen on the caliper, allow it to dry, then sprayed 3 layers of blue engine enamel, plus 2 layers of clear engine enamel...



there's a thread about that in the FAQ too, you might want to check it out.

I've heard that the clear top coat is a waste of time because it can't be subjected to such high temperatures. Is this true? If not, where's there a good place to get the top coat paint?? I'm planning on doing this over the weekend. Thanks!

I used the Por-15 engine painting kit. Painted the calipers, rotor hubs and the outside edge of the rotors. Looks sweet and gets rid of all the unsitely rust.

It's the UV rays more than oxidation that kills paint - so not really.

i used the clear engine enamel, same brand as my blue paint(it's Plasti-cote or something)... so yeah, it should be able to stand the heat.

i got those at PepBoys btw, i think it's like $4 a can (they lock all the paint in a cage, how about that!
).
