    I did this years ago on my imports. Even did white as someone mentioned it. Big white 18’s on a lowered car was the revolution years ago. The white paint got dirty fast but I think it still looked great.

    15 years later I’m back at it. I did choose the brush on. Aerosol application and trying to be neat isn’t easy.

    hopefully I’ll get it done soon

    I’m wondering if those decals would come off easy being the calipers get real hot? Any problems so far? I like it a lot!:thumbsup:

    I am just finishing painting my Calipers right now. Just read the instructions for the decals and it says if you clear coat over top they will look the same as when installed indefinitely, so I would think that means they won’t peal from the heat.

    All done...it was not as much fun as advertised lol. Scrubbing them clean then painting by brush is very time consuming, first coat takes the longest the rest go on thicker and quicker. If I had to do it again I would remove them blast and paint.

    Hey all. The calipers look awesome. Want to do mine too. Just not convinced on what color to paint them. After seeing all your posts I'm leaning Red. Truck is Lunar rock.what color would you suggest.

    Person you quoted hasn't been active since Aug 2021, so doubtful you will get a response.
