Brake caliper painting

Postby Papa-coatman » Fri Aug 09, 2019 10:10 am

Morning,

I've got new calipers to fit and thinking of painting them to keep them looking a bit nicer for longer...

Wondering what peoples opinions are on what type of primer is best to use if any? Its proper caliper paint I'll be using, the calipers are new, clean bare metal but the carriers are used so will need cleaning up first.

TIA

You will not need a primer with caliper paint.

Caliper paint or spray on smooth hammerite !

Neither need a primer.

I did mine with smooth red hammerite. Just had to repaint them some five years later.
