    Since we have a thread for tint, I figured a thread for caliper colors might not be a bad idea to help other out in deciding on a color. So here is my contribution. 16 bronze fire with Rust-oleum Specialty Ultra High Heat Aged Copper. 20180520_153835.jpg 20180520_153835.jpg

    Calipers and bracket was removed and seperated, wire wheeled and then sprayed with about 3 coats and reassembled. I will admit that the backside of the caliper was not painted. The calipers were painted on car without removing the rubber brake lines. Tape and newspaper to protect from over spray.

    Well John, doesn't look like too many are posting. So here's my contribution. G2 paint system. Comes with cleaner, brush, paint and accelerated.

    Wasn't hard to do. Brush on makes it nearly impossible to screw up lol. Down side was waiting for it to dry to install wheels and be able to drive her. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Both look great, I like the idea of painting the calipers. I'm trying to decide on the color I want to go with. Car is black but I was thinking of painting the calipers Ford "blue".

    You used a brush? Included with that G2 system? Looks great man! Where did you get the rotors?

    Yes, used the brush included with kit. Really wasn't hard at all.

    Power stop brake kit. Was called the Top Cop package. From Carid, don't think they sell it anymore.
