Default Repainting Calipers

Painted my brake calipers blue back in 2010 and decided it was time for a change. This time I've decided on Red. Debated if I should spray or brush the new color on and decided to apply with a brush. Didn't require as much prep work and and having to deal with overspray. Here are the before and after photos:



The red in the photo looks like it needs more paint, its just the photo. Put on three coats to make sure it looks good.

Based on your photos...I assume painting the red over the blue didn't give you any problems,and it looks good.(Now they POP!)

I mixed some black with the Duplicolor red to get the matching dark Inferno Red Pearlcoat on the soonercruiser.

One step closer to getting it done,took the Ebach kit out of the storage building and put it in the garage.
