Painting Brake Calipers

Recommended Posts

Hey guys heres a pic of the current state of my calipers and wheel hub. As you can see the hub is gone fairly rusty looking. i only bought the car so just trying to tidy it up a bit. Trying to decide what colours to go for and need some advice from members with similar colour altezzas.

Cheers

hub's black or silver

calipers: red, yellow, blue, black, silver it's really up to you

I've painted mine all black, but then my cars black with black wheels, and I'm going for the stealth look ;)

btw..... not trying to discourage you from posting, but this is a very old forum and most of these questions have been asked before so have a quick look with the search function and you will get a good insight into what others have already done.....

also a good time to check/change your pads when your painting them

I put mintex all round for a bout £55 when I painted mine, got them off of ebay ;)

Reckon red calipers would look nice on your Lex, you can also get the Lexus decals from the Club Store. Got the decals on mine (only on the front) and they look really good. :)
