Since I don't have the money for bigger calipers and rotors just yet, I decided to paint them using duplicolors caliper kit.. stuff works great.. Check out the pics.. car was on stands for a few days, cause I didnt have time to do it all in one sitting, probably about 6 hours work here for 1 person to do all 4.

Just finished this project on the Porsche last week. You are right, it does take a long time to do with just one person, but the results are def worth the time. Looks Great Dark Sol!

What did you use to clean them up before painting? I'm going to be painting mine blue sometime maybe Wednesday or Thursday. I have a cake to make Friday and I gotta deliver it Saturday but I gotta get them painted before the Flag Day Car Show Sunday. 😀

Go to advance. THey sell duplicolor brake caliper cleaning stuff. Get about 4 cans of that, and then 1 duplicolor brush on brake color kit. Clean them with a wire brush and the cleaning stuff. Let them dry completely and then paint them with the kit.

This is really messy and dont get it on your car paint or it will be gone. Takes several coats of paint when painting, probably around 3-5 coats. Mine have 5, I think Aaron went with 3.
