Painted Calipers

So i deceided to repaint my calipers a different color. I had done them red originally, but got sick of it real quick cuz everyone has red. Soooo, i decided to do yellow. Whatch think?
First i sanded down the caliper to get the red off



Then while i was at it i sanded the drum too cuz it was all rusty and painted it with some high heat black spray paint and degreaser first!







I used G2 yellow caliper paint, worked great.













Anyplace that the yellow got that it wasn't supposed to, i just put some black paint at the end of a thin paint brush and touched it all up so it looks neat and perfect.

Re: Painted Calipers

Looks nice! I would try to track down some covers for your rear caliper, really cleans up the look
