Domo if your thinking of painting your calipers dont use anything other then G2 paint you can get it online in pretty much any color and it works awesome and it pretty easy to put on. It comes with brake cleaner too

How do you get your paint so clear! Mine's got water spots in the paint, and no matter how hard I try..I can never get that super shine, deep color that yours has! What's your secret!


Also, what do you use on your wheels/tires?

Your wheels are very bright and shiny...how long does the tire dressing last?

Looks great. I want to paint my calipers this summer but going to start remodel of bathroom this year and thinking of glass block shower. So not sure if i am going to have the time until mid summer. Very Happy

Maybe I'll keep the Christmas theme. Paint mine green. Laughing
