place like supercheap auto you can get the cans of caliper paint, dunno how good it is, and if you do it make sure the calipers are spotless clean before you spray them, maybe put some degreaser over them first, just get them as clean as you can be before you spray

i work at supercheap and have used the paint to a few cars and it has been on there now for almost a year now and no problems with it coming off. just had to make sure that u clean it back and i gave them a light sand. didnt have to use primer or anything just straight on. many lighter coats seemed to work must beta then few thick ones. septone is the one i used, comes in many colours and and has i real high gloss if done right. im goin g to be doin my commo soon so ill put some pics up when its all done.
hope that cleared it all up.

It's a special paint designed for high temperature. I bought a can of black paint that I was going to use, but never got around to doing it.

Sounds good, do you have a model/type of the septone paint or is it pretty obvious which one it is when i go to there? Does it have like high temp paint on the can?

Installing new binnacle

Looking at the binnacle thing as well, any tips on installing the binnacle in place of the flat piece that is installed at factory, how is it removed? Not experts in this area of the VY .......... yet.
