Re: Painting brake calipers ('16 JGC HA)

Gorey, that looks amazing! Looks like you did a great job on the caliper painting! That last picture you posted of the side shot of your Jeep looks sooo good. I am extremely jealous of the black window trim. I have called two local shops and one guy said it wouldn't be worth the cost as it would be crazy which is ridiculous considering other guys have paid as low as $250 for the job. I then called another shop and the guy said he would call me back then never did. I have tried wrapping myself and its a no go. It does not come out good.
Wish I knew of a Chicago area shop that guys have used with professional results and reasonable pricing. Tha'ts a must do mod for me.

Re: Painting brake calipers ('16 JGC HA)

I had some decals made by them in the past and have a number of co-workers that have their roofs and trim done by them.
Pricing is reasonable and quality is good.
They gave me a quote on windows trim last year and it was 200-250.

Thanks again for the referral. I just called them and she said 200 bucks for the window trim which sounds very reasonable to me. She says they do window trim all the time so that makes me confident in their ability to do it right.

Re: Painting brake calipers ('16 JGC HA)

Be sure to let us know how it goes.
I was going to do all OEM black trim but the cost was more than expected.

I dunno, I thought 200 bucks sounded very reasonable considering the amount of work and skill needed to do the job right. Either way I will for sure post up pictures after I get it done. I will probably call them back tomorrow to setup an appointment. I will be going gloss black to match the gloss black window dividers and all the other stuff on the HA.

Sorry I meant too costly to buy the OEM black trim and have it installed. I might give the vinyl a try.

Hey hard was doing the painting on the inside part of the rotors?

Re: Painting brake calipers ('16 JGC HA)

Aside from having to pull the calipers, it isnt very difficult.

I have yet to do it on the 2015 Jeep but have done so on all my other cars.

Just remove them, clean em with some solvent, I use Eastwoods rust encapsulator paint, then top coat with their chasis black epoxy paint. Let them dry for day, then reinstall, coat the flange with antiseize or light coat of grease.

The important thing is to take them apart early, if you dont, and wait a number of years they will rust and seize to flange on the hubs, then when you have to change the rotors it can be a PITA to get them off, the factory should put some antiseize compound on the flange to prevent it.

Another problem,

The knuckles are aluminum and my pal at the dealers says the bearing housings seize in the knuckle and when the bearings fail, they are PITA to get out, he has a tool which bolts onto the flange with a couple of lugs and it sticks out about a foot, he pounds on it with a sledge to attempt to lever the bearing from the knuckle, I watched him bend the tool trying to get a bearing out of a Ram.

He told me to pull the axle nut, pull the bolts on the backside of the bearing,
slide knuckle outward and get the bearing out of the knuckle and clean the knuckle and put some antiseize in the knuckle and push the bearing back in.
Replace the 4 bolts holding the bearing housing into knuckle and reinstall the axle nut and tourque to spec.

All this is easy when new, his father bought a Ram and he did the prep.
He rust proofed it with Mopar anti rust spray-on wax on the floors, he took my advice and pulled all fender liners and sprayed up inside the wheel wells and arches.

He borrowed a special wand I have for aerosol cans of fluid film and sprayed fluid film in all the sub frames rockers, doors, interior cavities etc. He also did the bearings.

His fathers truck wont be a rust bucket in 15 yrs and if he needs wheel bearings at some point it will be a simple half hour job instead of a frustrating pita to get them out.
