    Do red brake pads make it stop faster?

    I must admit this is a hell of a lot of masking up :)

    I also have done a guide on this and how to clean them rusty wheel hubs.

    There is no need to mask that much lol ... being thorough is a good thing though.

    Regards

    Is 1 can of paint enough to do the 4 calipers comfortably? Would it be unwise to not use a primer before painting?

    Cheers guys, has your paint held together without the primer mate?

    I've never used primer either, just make sure your parts are spotless before you apply and buy a tin of caliper paint that says it does not need a primer

    Caliper paint is made with lazy people in mind that will spray on not overly clean brakes. It will go on fine without primer.

    Yeh righto, I guess I will go without primer then, just figured I can save $25 by not getting primer if it does'nt make any difference.
