Thanks.
The G2 is a high temp(900) 2 part epoxy paint.......the duplicolor is just a high temp paint. No idea on which lasts the longest...i would say the epoxy G2. the G2 has a lot more colors too.

Re: Cleaning brakes/Painting Calipers

If anyone is up in the air about painting there calipers i'd say do it. Not sure the cost of other brands, but I spent under 20 bucks at the auto store for the Dulpi-Color Red brush on paint kit and it makes a world of difference. Even with stock rims it makes them stand out like they are expensive after market calipers if done with a color that stands out. I've past by a WK with the calipers painted a silver, had stock rims on it and it looked great. With the red kit I have on everyone automatically notices the calipers because of the color. I have a habit of looking thru the Dupont Registry magazine all the time, where they sell high end exotics. I think its awesome seeing a lime green Lambo and the calipers match. Scotts right, with the Dulpi-color they stock basic colors, at least at the auto stores. All I have seen are black, silver and red. I did such an anal job of cleaning off the calipers before I applied the paint that its adhered perfect and shows no signs of coming off soon. Plus the calipers do not get that hott, next time you go for a long drive and brake alot get out and feel the surface of the calipers, not scorching hott. So the Dulpi-color kit is fine for normal operation.










Look at the difference from unpainted and painted. God dam it, its only 20 bucks, DO IT!!!!!

Re: Cleaning brakes/Painting Calipers

I've had a G2 kit laying around for about 6 months and haven't made the time to do it. This post has me realize that it WILL be done sooner rather than later.

Re: Cleaning brakes/Painting Calipers

I deff want to do this.

What/how did you clean/prep the calipers? I had used duplicolor spray on caliper paint and peeled off but this kit sounds like its much better. Do they need primming?

Also dont use that brake caliper paint in the parts stores, its flakes off when washing.
Mine hasn't flaked off. Did you try cleaning the caliper/rotor before painting them

Re: Cleaning brakes/Painting Calipers

That what I used was the spray can Duplicolor caliper paint. Mine were rusty at the time so I had to scrub the crap out of them with a wire brush and some brake cleaner, its still holding up though.

Now I have to paint my new rotors becasue they are rusty.....should have done it when I put them on!!!

Re: Cleaning brakes/Painting Calipers

What rotors did you get Will??

All you need to prep, paint and finish them comes in the box. Go to like Advance, or Autozone, and buy the Dupli-Color Caliper painting kit. It come with paint, a brush, brake cleaner, and a little roll of masking tape....for like $18 if I remember correctly...I did mine more than a year ago...in RED..hehe...and it still look just like it did they I painted them...
