Hi All,

I have been looking at painting my Brake Calipers and wanted to know what paint people would recommend. Reading reviews online there seems to be a lot of mixed reviews!

 

Thanks 

Aaron

For maximum performance and street credit I'd use plenty of masking tape, 

Spray on some primer then spray on the colour 

Also ensure to paint both sides evenly otherwise the vehicle will torque steer towards the side which has less performance.

I used simoniz engine enamel paint (gloss black). You only need this and nothing else to paint the calipers. I painted the calipers and carriers and splash shields.
