Caliper paint, sand paper, brake cleaner, painters tape. These are the essentials

YES!
This goes for painting/ modding anything.
If you try to do it quick, it will come out crappy.

i just painted my drums and calipers. i think I spent about 3-4 hours on each wheel in all. its really quite simple. I recommend going to an auto store and finding a Caliper Kit of the color you desire. it will have the cleaner and the paint in a brush on form which will essentially last longer than spraypaint.

The most important part, is getting them clean before you paint! So if you have a dremmel with a brush wheel your project is going to be MUCH easier! That and break cleaner are your best friends!

BTW this forum is for how-to tutorials ONLY! Please post in the correct section.
