Red Calipers

RED BRAKE CALIPERS
Purpose:
I followed the steps for using Rustoleum spray paint, though I deviated by using Ford Red engine cover enamel for the top coat since I could not find any Stop Sign red rustoleum at the Home Depot.

I did the front calipers one weekend, and a couple weeks later did the rear.

The paint has held up well and though I do not make any effort to clean the calipers

I think they look better red even though they are dirty.

Long-term Report:
The engine enamel and BBQ paint is not a tough combination. If the surface is impacted such as can happen when remounting a wheel, there is a possibility of chipping a flake of the paint off. I learned this through experience. I now strive to be careful when removing and mounting my wheels. Hopefully a brake painting kit will be more durable to the types of abuse the calipers experience.
