So whats best??

i know its been covered a thousand times. Which would you recommend though. To paint brake calipers should you:

A-take the spray and spray it in a cup then use a brush to paint??
B-use the spray as a spray and mask everything off??
C-completely remove caliper and spray without having to mask anything??

Duplicolor has brake paint kits. It comes w/ a small paint brush, but buy a small foam brush.

I take the caliper off the bracket and spray it. I take the bracket off and clean it up and spray that too. Then I put the brake pads on the bracket and make sure they slide.

Take caliper off, clean it to beat hell, paint it, paint it again.

Search, and ye shall find what you seek.

What type of paint would be best to paint calipers?


Spray paint is way more time consuming than is needed and is a big waste of time IMO.
