While I've installed suspension and brakes in the past, it can be some work. This past weekend's task was much easier with the use of G2's Brake Caliper Paint System Set to cover up the factory caliper's tarnished raw casting.
The G2 Caliper Paint System is quite thorough and comes with a can of brake clean, paint color of you choice, hardening resin, stir stick and paint brush. For less than $40 it comes with everything you need to do the job correctly and doesn't require the removal of the brake calipers themselves. While many people resort to spray paint, this method requires masking to avoid overspray and has a finish that isn't temperature resistant to brake heat.
To apply the G2 Caliper Paint System, follow these simple steps:
- Properly lift vehicle and place stands.
- Remove wheels.
- Mix paint and resin, stir for 5 minutes.
- Clean calipers using supplied brake cleaned.
- Apply paint using supplied brush (Use sparingly as a little goes a long ways.)
- Allow a few hours to fully cure.
- Install wheels and lower car to ground.
- Properly torque all four wheels.
Featuring such an easy installation, anyone that can change a wheel and tire can do this job. While I chose to go with a factory style color (black), a wide range of colors are available to suit your preferences.
G2's Brake Caliper Paint System Set is an easy and cost-effective complement to a Tire & Wheel Package or brake job.
