Talking Photos of My Girlfriend Painting My Calipers (More Photos Added for Leghumpers...)

Shitty weather today. We got bored so we painted my calipers with some caliper paint. She did the passenger side, I did the driver side. Her work was much better than mine lol...

This is was we used:

I used that same stuff for my calipers. Silver on the brackets and their blue for the actual caliper. It looks good and covers it well. Congrats

Dude I do the same thing. If there is anything tedious to do I'll have my wife do it like painting something like that. She has way more patience and her's always looks better than mine! Good looking GF to

Thanks. Gotta love it!

I should have her paint my front bumper too haha. Teach her how to use a spray gun. She helps me wash the car, but what girl wouldn't want to do that? BTW: What is this patience thing of which you speak?

Did you do anything to prep the calipers? It's a brush-on paint? How's the final result? Do you see brush marks in it?

I had the calipers on my camaro professionally sprayed at a bodyshop and they turned out great but I need to do the ones on my Honda now and don't want to go through all that trouble of pulling the calipers off and bleeding the brakes and being down for two weeks.

There is a spray that comes with it. It smells and acts like normal brake clean, just in can with graphics on it. It recommends use of a metal brush or tooth brush to clean the surface. You could see the brush marks at first, but as it dried that slowly disappeared. I did see an area that is no longer glossy on one of the calipers. Didn't check the rest. Not sure if this is from the heat or what? I'll most likely put a second coat on at some point, but have no plans to pull all the wheels back off anytime soon! I'll get some close up once I get some free time.

In the meantime.. this is all I have from the past year of owning the car...
