    I'd like to take my boring silver calipers and give them that sweet, sweet red the rest of the Pro has.

    So, anybody have a recommendation for a specific paint that gets close?

    Ive done both! The G2 brush makes it easier to paint while the calipers are still on the truck.Masking off the area is almost non existent. The G2 seems to be a bit more durable too.

    M3 no longer own it but I used G2 on it.
    My dad owns it now and the G2 is holding up great. Best I could find.
