Question Paint for disc brake pads & rear brake drums

Hi All,


I am not certain and unable to find thread on piant for brake pads.

I am seeking to get the barke pads & drums painted in either Red or Yellow, I have a black Ikon and for the same suggest the best color thats appealing thru the alloys and paint( that can resist rust, heat).


Thanks,

Question Hi guys - looking for blue caliper

Hi guys, just last week, I was going through some threads & saw this really gorgeous brake caliper, painted blue, & with Corvette lettering. I remember enough to say that it had been posted in response to somebody's advice that blue wasn't an ideal choice for brake calipers. Does anybody remember which post it was ? It was really awesome !

Default Re: Paint for disc brake pads & rear brake drums

Hi,
If you want to paint your brake calipers and break drum then I would suggest "G2 Brake Caliper Paint System Set".

It includes everything necessary to paint four (4) standard sized brake calipers or two (2) brake drums in your driveway or professional performance shop.

It is a two-part paint and can resist heat up to 980 degrees.

G2ô Brake Caliper paint kit offers a 100% product performance guarantee.

Each kit contains a high-performance aerosol caliper cleaner, mixing can, stirrer, application brush, installation instructions and a color decal.

For further details visit G2 Brake Caliper Paint System Set

I have read a lot of positive review of this product. I am planning to get this kit from USA through one of my relative. I will post further details once I get it here.

I got my car's brake calipers and wheel hubs painted when I got a set of new wheels.
Simple task: There's a spray can you get - different ones for painting the calipers and wheel hub. I preferred Silver/Chrome for calipers and black for the hubs.

First, you clean the surface by spraying kerosene and then with sand paper and prepare for painting. Then spray a thin coat of primer, wait for it to dry and spray the preferred color on the target parts.

Let dry naturally for 30 mins and you'r done.
