New Brembo Caliper Color

OLD

Items used
Dawn soapy water to wash the calipers
brake cleaner to clean
steel wool
3M Sandblaster Gold Series 320 grit (fine) sand paper
mar-hyde total prep automotive cleaner for adhesion promotions
Duplicolor Silver Anodized Metalcast Ground Coat

3 layers
Duplicolor Red Anodized Metalcast Paint











I did both sides at the same time which cuts down on time since you have to wait 10 minutes between coats so you need a floor jack and 2 jack stands. Using a 19mm socket loosen the lug nuts on both sides, raise the jeep up and support both sides with jack stands, remove wheels, wash both calipers with dawn soapy water, dry with towel or air compressor, spray down with brake cleaner, using steel wool scuff up the entire caliper front and back, spray down with brake cleaner, take a small trash bag and cover rotor and pull it behind the caliper between it and the rotor-do this on both sides-tape up to hold in place, tape over the area where the brake pads slide out, spray down adhesion promotor/caliper cleaner-let dry, spray down base/ground coat (mine was metallic anodized silver) first coat spray light-let dry for 10 minutes while that is drying do the other side, repeat with second coat-wait 10 minutes, 3rd coat a little heavy-wait 15 minutes. Now your ready for the top coat (mine was anodized red metallic) basically same process as the ground/base coat. On the final top coat wait a good 30 minute before applying the Brembo stickers if its cold outside maybe even an hour (trust me)Finally using clear engine enamal or VHT caliper clear coat you can put on as man layer of clear coat as you want just be careful and down spray it too close or it will bubble up and leave a grayish coating and not clear.

Re: New Brembo Caliper Color

I chose the silver anodized ground coat to calm down the red and get it closer to the maroonish color of the jeep. Whats great about the anodized metalcast paints is that you can mix and match the colors and they will bleed thru to give some wicked color outcome.

Re: New Brembo Caliper Color

Damn, that looks sick!

Great work on the paint job, looks like it came out the factory like that.

Re: New Brembo Caliper Color

Just take your time and maybe do front 2 one day and the rear the next or start early, make sure your in a closed but ventilated garage and after spraying be sure to wipe down the jeep with detail spray or distilled water as overspray will get on it but not really stick just wipe it off its very minimal also dont spray too close with the clear enamal I had to redo one that I got too close with the clear enamal is overkill but it will also seal on the brembo stickers for sure and added heat protection. The metallic paint is good for 500 degrees and the engine enamal clear coat is as well, if you track your jeep you will want VHT caliper clear coat good for 900 degrees

I found all I needed at Advanced Autoparts.

Re: New Brembo Caliper Color

Looks great. Where did you get the Brembo stickers from, Advance Auto Parts? I'd luv those on my stock calipers, but not sure it would work with how they have the Jeep logo cast in them and getting the stickers to fit. One thing that would of looked great, and im just really knit picking here, is either masking off the bolts or removing them so they stay black.
