How to Paint Brake Calipers
Take the pad bracket off of the piston.
I kept the piston section on, BC I didn't wanna unhook the line or e brake.
Prep for paint i hit it good with a wire wheel on my grinder to remove the surface rust.
this is really the quickest way to prep it for paint.
Did the pad (outer bracket) in a vice, same way
Got some high temp paint.
The only had silver, black or red in they're "caliper" paint.
So i got this wheel paint, and a clear. 8)
The clear makes it much more shiny, I'd recommend it.
I masked off the area, and the piston and bleeder cap.
sprayed 3 coats of color, and 3 of clear.
let it dry for one day, and reassembled, remounted.
the only PITA part is getting the bottom bolt in with the E-Brake cable right in front of the hole.
Had to unhook the cable from the LCA bracket, slide up the outer (pad) bracket to get them in.
I also swapped my rotors. huge visual improvement, especially with smaller spoked wheels.
they also stop better
Put it together, remounted (which was kind of a PITA with the e-brake cable right in front of the bottom hole.
I'm happy with how it turned out!!
