Paint & Body Work - Painted the Calipers
08-13-2008, 09:16 PM
Well I had the day off and got the work done in the morning around the house that I wanted too and was feeling saucy :joecool: So I took my rotors off to return them to Autozone because they were still under warranty When i was there I picked up engine block paint and clear coat and some sand paper. Then to the hardware store for drop cloth and painters tape. I got home and masked off the part of the rotors where the pads are and cleaned the calipers and brackets thoroughly with soapy water and engine degreaser. I painted the calipers red and hubs and everything else black. I really like it.
I did my painting based on this LS1tech web sites:
Sorry for no pictures. Our digital camera is dead. I'll try to get some pics up tomorrow.

Ya I had to change rotors so I just went ahead and did them. Its really not that hard to do yourself. Just get a morning or afternoon and go at it but TAKE YOUR TIME....
