You can get a general idea from my site on how to paint the calipers,,,but I took the longer route and took my calipers off and sandblasted mine and I also did the rotors that way as well,,,only cause I think it comes out better,,,just my opinion....But you can paint them on your car...Just make sure you use a caliper paint or you can also use an engine paint as well,,,you just go to make sure it's a high heat paint cause your calipers do heat up.....whitesentra said:Hey it looks nice! Well done. I have few questions though. Do you have to take the calipers to print them?? If yes how difficult it is? Do I need to do anything before i print them?? what kind of print i should geT? sorry I ask so many questions I'm a newbie keke
Thanks, you don't have to take them off to do it but I'm sure it's a lot easier to do. If you leave them on you have to be really really carefull and used a tiny detail paint brush to make sure you only paint the caliper and not the brake pads or anything else around. You need to clean them really well before you even think about painting them. I used a special pre paint cleaner and then put on a special compound that helps the paint stick better. I used Dupli-Color high heat engine paint. It just happened to be left over from my engine bay painting. Its ok, I was once a newbie too. Hope this helpswhitesentra said:Hey it looks nice! Well done.

That's th reason I painted my rotor cause once I threw the rims back on they stuck right out.....Nismo_Girl_2001 said:That looks really nice Gene. I didn't paint the roter part b.c with the stock rims it doesn't show anyways. If I get my new rims soon I will paint them but for now just the calipers are ok. I drove by a huge glass building today and man they look really cool. Yeah I know kinda sad, but I drive by that glass building like once a day at least lol. I love to see my car go by it.
Not supposed to stop raining until Monday/Tuesday of next week so it might be a little wait for those pics .
