October 20, 2006I wanted to know what kind of pain to use on the brake Calipers/Drums. I dint want to paint them with the wrong kind. Can anyone help?
October 20, 2006I haven't done it, but I know auto stores carry VHT (Very High Temp) paint that can withstand temps brakes can reach. I'd suggest getting some Brakleen or similar and wiping things down to be sure everything is clean and oil-free before you paint.
October 20, 2006There are a few people on this site that have done it...do to gallery and seacrch mods for " calipers" or "painted" then email one of them....if you haven't already thought of that..
October 20, 2006I work for oreilly auto parts an I sell dupli-color caliper paint kits. you can get them from Oreilly Auto. napa, advavnce,and autozone
You dont haft to tape,mask,an get over spray all over the PT it just brushes on
October 21, 2006BRUSHES ON!!?? I gotta look into that. Is that all the color choices Dave? Thinking of doing the blue but looks a little light for me.
October 21, 2006Jeff it brushes on an that is the only blue so far. I tryed to mix two of the colors to make orange an it did not turn out very orange so I just tossed it.
VHT has a spray paint that is darker it is part # SP-732
Eteck has a dark blue
here is the link
October 23, 2006I wish the brush-on came in a darker blue. I think I'm gonna start looking around, been wanting to do this mod for a while now. Thanks for the info Dave.
October 23, 2006I have used the dupli-color brush on. I have a dark grey pt and like the stelth look. Went with the black. Have chrome 17" GT wheels and the shiny black look nice and clean.
Have had it on for about 8 months and it still looks good.
October 23, 2006PTC, I agree the Blue us a little light but if i had to do it with the colors dave should it would be RED then i would get a make a stinsel to put Brembo on them in Black or Yellow.
October 23, 2006Jeff, I'm thinking, maybe you could get some compatable paint "Tint" from a paint store to make the Duplicolor paint darker. Just an idea.
