Just the caliper paint, and clean calipers and drums (or new drums, if they're close to needing changing anyway) for the best results, a primer won't work. I'd recommend paint rather than a spray can as it's far easier to get it exactly where you want it, and only where you want it. Paint them whatever colours you like, I don't see why what you're planning would look strange!
how to callibrate the calipers on a 2003 hyundai tiburon?
Same thing happened to me last month after changing the pads. Turned out to be a frozen caliper.
If it is bad it's better just to change the whole caliper. Not a hard job for a good tech but a little involving. If you never done it before you may want a tech to do it.
From my experience you can't get a new OEM caliper from a parts store. You have to go to the dealer if you want a brand new OEM.
I would recommend taking it to a auto decal place and getting some custom decals made for it. I would say you should just go a talk with a decal shop and see if they can offer some cool idea's. Sometimes subtle is cool. I still remember a GMC truck I once seen that someone had replace the stock pin striping with a barbed wire design pin striping, it was a very subtle touch but looked very cool.
Toyota Celica??? paint, brake calipers and brake drums?
Whatever colour you decide on,make sure that you use the same colour on the front and the back.
I have a nice light blue colour on my cars brakes for now but i am seriously thinking about changing
to a bright yellow colour.My car is silver so i can use almost any colour but i think yellow would be good.
should i paint my calipers and how much? ford probe?
Auto zone carries caliper paint in their Dupli color brand. The kit is $20 for both calipers. Get a can of brake clean, a small wire brush and some rags while your at it.
Get it in the air, no wheels, of course and do one side at the time. Get some news paper and masking tape and cover up the fender, just in case. clean the caliper well. the better you clean it the better the paint will stick, and follow the direction on the back of the box.
It will defiantly look cool.
What are some cool things to make my 2004 red pontiac bonneville look cooler?
I own bonneville SLE i didn't do some upgrades to it but i bought my repair parts on ebay. epartal is the name of the seller. I got my window regulator for $47 as it is $300 from the dealership. It works the same and have it for couple of months. They offer free shipping. You might want to ask them for parts that you can use for upgrades and maybe they can suggest how to soupped up your car too.
What color should i paint my calipers on a black g37 convertible?
Nobody's wowed by painted brake calipers. If you want to put in the time and effort for your own sake, then paint them.
But doing it for the sake of being "cool" or "original".....well that takes more than red brake calipers.
where/how can i find brake calipers for a 300zx that are red and say NISSAN on them?
The best is to find out which calipers fit as an alternative if the 300zx calipers do not have Nissan on them,myself have a Nissan skyline and my calipers although writing is painted white is does have Nissan on the calipers.
What does it cost to have Brake Calipers Painted Professionally?
Thats too bad that you refuse to do it on your own, because it would cost less than $20. A shop will charge between $60-$90 per hour and will bill you for at least one hour plus the cost of the paint and taxes and so on. So I figure you would be looking at about $80-$100.
At least they won't f@$k it up.
would painting the brake calipers of my stock Jeep Wrangler be a good idea?
if you want the look, go for it. To avoid a chemical fire, use high temp paint. You don't need to spend the extra for caliper paint. Use high temp engine paint, its made with ceramic. Like said, don't paint the rotors, piston or pads. Also, if you use some brake clean and a wire brush to clean them up nice before you paint 'em, the paint will last longer without flaking off.
what color should i paint my brake calipers on my 03 red mitsubishi eclipse?
I would go with Black, if you are going to use your original brake pads. If Red, I would replace the brake pad with "ceramic" pads. That's because the semi metallic put out dust that will cover the wheels and calipers.
Kind of paint to use on alloy wheels and brake calipers?
You will need to use a high temp paint on the calipers. The wheels are clearcoated from the factory so they don't oxidize, so you don't need to worry about the paint sticking to the aluminum. You will need to degrease them and scuff them with a red scotch brite pad. Then use a high quality spray paint. A basecoat/clearcoat paint sprayed through a paint gun would be best, but to do it yourself a high quality aerosol paint will work.
do you think blue break calipers would look good on a red 95 civic hatch?
I own a red 95 Civic EG8 4dr and I have both the calipers and the drums painted blue.
In my honest opinion I think that the contrast in colors looks good and since many people don't have them painted that way it would give your car a unique look. I have JDM headlights + side makers and red tow hooks on my car so it has a stock yet sporty JDM look.
Hope this helps!
A oven doesn't do shit. It's to speed up the curing of the paint. What you are looking at are big reds. they are on the 964 turbo's and 996/7 turbos 928 GT...... FFR Big black are the same as big reds different color. To get them painted is to use aircraft grade paint stripper and high quality paint. Look up brembo painting on google. the subbie guys do it all of the time. DIY around 200$, professional easy to drop a grand.
btw when you go to paint supplier look for gaurds red... ;)
I want red calipers brakes but how much does it cost?
