Found the following thread in 5 seconds by using Search and typing "painted calipers" as my keywords.Has anyone done this?
Its not how you paint them its what kind of paint you use - cheaper high temp aerosol paint or a more expensive kit like G2I too want to paint my calipers.
I am aware that there are 2 ways to do this:
1) Leave the calipers in place and paint over them (similar to Member OSAKA's brother)
2) Completely take the calipers off the brake pad, clean them thoroughly, paint them and then put them back on
Now, I was told that the best way to do this is going for the second choice.
If you were to go with choice number 1, since the calipers dissipate a lot of heat, the paint is without doubt going to peel off.
What do you guys think?
Has anyone gone with number 1 and regretted it because of paint peeling or is that just a bunch of BS? I would think it would be true!
It just seems like such a hassle to go with number 2.
Red is very much overdone, so many use this color, and it is not fitting for an Audi IMO. If your only choices are black or red, then black is the way to go, especially with a black car. I also would choose yellow with a black car over red. My top choice would be glossy silver, more in line with Audi.iiii dont think so - im still leaning towards red tho - brembo look alike or not
