A popular way to customize a show vehicle is painting brake calipers. With a jack, a lug wrench, cleaning solution and paint from AutomotiveTouchup, the job can be done in a garage or in the driveway. The best part is that using AutomotiveTouchup allows for an exact color match to the vehicle rather than selecting from a handful of colors available through the detailers.
AutomotiveTouchup is a quick and easy three-step process consisting of a sandable primer, paint color, and glossy clear coat. Once the calipers are cleaned of rust and debris buildup, simply apply the sandable primer in an even coat and allow to dry. If more is needed, apply once the previous coat of primer is completely dry. After the primer is finished, add the paint color in an even coat. Multiple coats of color may be needed and should only be applied once the previous coat is dry. Finally, the clear coat seals the color and leaves a glossy finish.
Everything needed to paint the brake calipers is available on the company’s website, including dust masks, sandpaper, sanding blocks, prep solvent, rubbing compound, nitrile gloves and more.
