Brake Calipers


Recommended Posts

Evening boys and girls.

I wish to pick your brains because I'm being indecisive again (or am i?)

What colour should I paint my brake calipers on my Antimony colour IS200?

I don't want anything too garish, I like things to be subtle but noticable if you know what I mean.

Thoughts please

I'd go for black or silver :D

Right kids I'm pretty sold on the black to be honest. I think they'd look pretty sweet - not showy at all, they just look nice. Exactly the qualities I like. Second question... What paint do I use? I've read another post that says Hammerite smooth - I assume that comes in gloss black? Do I need primer? What about after I put the stickers on, what do I use to seal it? Some kind of lacquer I assume? But which? Sorry if all these are answered in other posts somewhere but I couldn't find them.

Thanks for the input.

Hey matey.

Granite sky calls for one of two colours. Either black or gold in my opinion. If you wanted to go red, hows about mixing some paint up and going for a darker shade of red.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only person on this forum to have an Antimony coloured car lol! I've never met another one who has it!

Yeh Hammerite smooth is perfect, no need for primer, just give the calipers a good clean first and maybe a rub with wire wool. As for lacquer I just used a standard spray tin from Halfords, build up a few layers.
