Decided to slop some paint on the calipers today.

Simple, straightforward, easy as any writeup you can find on the forums.


I used a rust-inhibitor rattle can to do the job. It's not any kind of fancy caliper paint, just some random stuff off the shelf at your local hardware. Hi-Temp paint is good up to 1000 degrees - That's a bit much. This stuff is supposedly good up to 400 degrees, which I figure, for the cost of it, is good enough to try.

Wheels off, tape on, red primer, yellow paint, let dry overnight.





Important notes of the day:

1) Stop thinking about how cool lowering this car would be: You live in Michigan, you plow 10" snow drifts, your garage jack only clears the bottom of the car by 1/4" or so bone stock, already.

2) Glass beer bottles on concrete isn't the hottest idea. Contact Billet Tech about making some custom coasters.

3) The white-out I did on the tire lettering didn't dry properly. This is probably because it was overcast and humid for three days straight after I painted them. This caused them to remain sticky, and they picked up a lot of dirt. Try repainting then during a hot week.
