Painted Calipers..finally
Well I was off today, and my decision for the day was either spend the day painting my calipers, or go trade my 5 month car in on an ST. I think I made the more financially sound choice.

Took most of the day, between disassembly, cleaning, and multiple coats of everything. For the red, I used an actual brush on ceramic caliper paint kit, which dries to a hard and smooth surface. For the brackets, I used gloss black epoxy roll bar/chassis paint for some chip resistance. Did three coats on each part. I think it was worth a good days work.

I will post up some pics of the car over the next few days to show them with the wheels. My car is filthy and it's raining the past few days here.

Looks good. Like that you went with car color. I've been wanting to do mine but not sure whether to go Ford Blue or something brighter. You get the paint from local store?

Wow, looks great! That will look really nice with the race red.

Those look good. I don't know your car. What wheels are in front of those?

No, those are stock calipers painted red and black.

THESE are fake Brembos:

His sig says the stock 18" Ti wheels. I imagine he also used the G2 kit for the calipers.
