Re: Red Brake Calipers

/\ /\ I second painting them.

Personally I recommend taking the pads and retaining clips out and making sure that the paint jobs looks good.

Whether you use a brush on kit, aerosol engine paint or, aerosol brake caliper paint all of them will hold up for years.

My last car I used Duplicolor engine paint to paint the calipers and the calipers still looked good up to when I traded it in and it was on there for 6 + plus.

Re: Red Brake Calipers

I used VHT Engine paint (which I think is duplicolor now)

I did it when I did a brake job and this worked out really well as I took everything off & remounted for prep & paint. No need to disconnect the brake line
