Sorry to hijack the thread. How do you paint calipers? Special paint? Do them yourself? Or is there companies that do them?

Some heat resistant paint or specific caliper paint. There are many threads on here about how to do them, I believe ABP do them for 100 too...

My Calipers on my new type S wheels

I painted mine with E-Tech Brake Caliper Paint.

I took the front caliper and caliper holder off and gave them 3 coats each. However I have noticed that some parts of the caliper are chipping off already. A bit dissapointed really!!!

Here are some pics. I need to wash the car LOL!

used hammerite smooth on mine, rubbed them down, degreased them and cleaned them off with white spirit. Finished them off with Gers decals
