Caliper Painting FAQ
Why get your brake calipers professionally painted?
Professional brake caliper painting makes your vehicle bright, and tend to stand out. Whether you have a performance kit installed on your vehicle, or the Porsche SUV that you drive the kids to soccer practice in, the color you coat your brake calipers in can define your style. Some common colors we see people use are: red, blue, yellow, black, orange, green, purple, pink, gold, white, copper & lime.
How long does caliper paint take to dry?
Dry and re-coat times are based on 70ºF and 50% relative humidity. Allow more time at cooler temperatures. Dries to touch in 2-4 hours, to handle in 5-9 hours and is fully dry after 24 hours. Wait 5-9 hours before reinstalling wheels and 24 hours before resuming use of the vehicle.
How do you remove paint from brake calipers?
According to the experts, you'll need brake cleaner, a wire brush or scouring pad, and ideally some isopropyl alcohol. Scrub the living crap out of the calipers, down to bare metal if possible, as it'll give the paint something to stick to. Dry off the calipers with the isopropyl alcohol.
