VHT Caliper Paint

Clean, primer, paint colour and clear coat.

Make sure they are really really clean first, and dry. The cleaner they are the better the finish.

yeah thats not really difficult lol, i think the heat associated with braking will be enought to cure the paint.

i recently rotated my 20s , so i painted up the callipers while theyre off. But take it for a quick yip (keep the calipers hot) then jack it, and use thinners an a wire brush , wait til theyre dry (5min) then mask them up, prime them an give it few min to heal, then two -three coats of hi temp Gloss !!! took me about 1hr
