Caliper Colour

Recommended Posts

Lo all

I am consulting you all on which colour you think would suit my calipers on a Met Blue IS SPort(i dont know the correct Lexus name for my paint any help would be great :) )

And also where to get myself some caliper transfers and a spangly metal tax disc holder

Looking forward to your suggestions

You can buy the caliper transfers through the LOC - Club store at the top of the page. When you paint the caliper be sure & paint the exposed parts of the hub as you can still see them through the wheels & they look naff once you paint the caliper.

I used to have black with white decals which looked cool.

Now got red with white decals and it looks much better.

Decals are Here

Paint can be bought from Halfords. Or there is a caliper painting kit which I bought from ebay. The paint is much brighter and turns kind of rubbery... much better than hammerite IMO... The kit I bought is Here But they sell around 6 different colours. :D

Plus it makes your car go that little bit more faster... adds about 0.001 bhp if my dyno was correct :lol:

I was going to do my calipers red but at the last moment i decided to do them silver to match the alloys. Make sure you use Lacquer to seal it after you've put the paint on.

Removal of the rust on the caliper reduces the weight of the car which makes it faster :lol:
