Looking to paint my calipers because they are looking really bad. When I put my summer set of wheels on, it takes away the look of them with a faded, rusty looking caliper behind them. What color is best? I have a silver car and my wheels are black. I've narrowed it down to a gloss or a glossy silver.
Silver would look good, makes it stand out. Try stenciling impala on them with black would be sick. Also if I were you I would powdercoat them. Otherwise just make sure you take the calipers off to paint them and sand them good beforehand. Don't paint the brake pads.... Trust me lmao
i planed on putting the impala script on them. I am not upgrading to F body calipers. I was leaning towards silver but i didn't even take into the account of the size of the caliper. Now i am leaning towards black with a silver impala script.
I do not want to remove them however. Too much work to bleed them and whatnot with my busy schedule. I was gonna do my best to clean them up with a wire brush, sandpaper, and degrease. I will mask of the brake pad, i already knew that is so lame .
