Looks really nice qnd clean there lenny im gunna be doing my callipers in that halfords red so made up to see the colour turned out how it hae but how long fid you leave the car after painting before you drove it obv for getting to work and that need to find adequate time to do it ?
This is my third time painting calipers on a car, but my first time using the halfords paint,
It doesn't dry as quickly as the foliatec paint that I used on the previous two cars, but on the other hand; foliatec drys like concrete in 40minutes so you don't get much time to apply after mixing as the foliatec is a two part mix.
The halfords paint is slightly watery and will run if applied too heavily, so a total of 3 thin coats is required to complete,
Spacing the coats 40 minutes apart from each other,
Wrap the paint brush in a plastic bag when not in use to prevent drying between coats,
Regardless of how much cleaning/preperation you do on the calipers, the first coat will still be a mix of black carbon and red paint, so you need to let that dry,
Then apply a clean red coat on top of that again.
Once fully painted id wrap the wheel just like I have done on previus page then leave to dry for 10-12hours if possible,
I work shift so it was easy for me on 7-3 paint one side by 18:00 then not drive until 06:00
Or on nights paint by 14:00 then not drive until 22:00
But even if I was using foliatec paint id still give it at minimum 8 hours drying time to fully set.
