There’s nothing worse than having a really nice set of wheels on a great looking car, and behind them is a rusty looking set of brake calipers, really spoiling the image of your car, truck, van or SUV.
Or you might want to get the same look as the top end or sports model in your cars range, or perhaps do something a little different to set your ride apart from all the others. With our caliper painting service, we can help you achieve your desires.
What We Do To Paint Brake Calipers
To ensure we get a top quality and long lasting result, we carry out the following steps each time when we are painting brake calipers for our customers.
- Jack up vehicle & remove wheels
- Mask off vulnerable parts (pipes, discs, etc.)
- Remove loose rust & dirt
- Clean calipers with cleaning solution
- Primer calipers with appropriate primer
- Paint calipers with appropriate paint
- Apply logo to calipers
- Clear coat calipers with appropriate clear coat
- Refit wheels & tighten wheel lug nuts
- Lower vehicle to ground
The brake calipers are not removed from the car to carry out the painting process, as this would require disconnecting and disturbing brake hoses and bleeding of the system, which would add considerable additional time and expense to the process.
What Brake Caliper Paint Colors Are There?
Most vehicles come with untreated and unpainted brake calipers from the factory. They are normally cast metal and tend to rust quickly and easily without a coating on them. We use brake caliper paints specially designed for the purpose that will enhance the look and offer protection against surface corrosion. These brake caliper paints are available in the following colors:
- Color Match ($50 extra charge)
