Blue Brake Calipers

It is a relatively simple, inexpensive mod. However, it does take several hours. I used a Duplicolor caliper kit. It costs about $17.Depending on how much paint I have left, two calipers, two drums, or even two trucks can quickly finish. It comes with almost everything you need. The pigment contained in the kit is applying with a brush. It’s some ceramic epoxy material, so it should last a long time. I had a hard time finding a blue outfit in Topeka. I think I bought the only one in town. Blue is not a perfect match for Speedway blue, but it is very close.

First, you remove the wheel. Recommend that you remove the calipers from the rotor for best results, but I didn’t do that, but I’m glad I didn’t. You need to be more careful with your painting. I think they’re perfect. Then, I tape everything around the calipers with a caliper to get dirt or detergent where I shouldn’t. Then I cleaned the calipers with a wire brush. The kit does not come with a wire brush but can make work faster. Then, use the included caliper cleaner spray to clean them further. Then I roughed them up with some sandpaper. Then I applied three coats of paint. You must work quickly because the color will set soon. By the time I’ve finished painting one caliper, it’s time to put another coat on top of another. After about an hour, the paint is dry.

I haven’t decided whether to do the rear rotor or not. I think I might because they were small. It makes a very subtle difference, but I like it.
