Was wandering opinions on painting calipers. Brushed on vs spray. Brush looks to be less taping up and less chance of overspray. What are yours opinions

a friend of mine used G2's Caliper paint and it came out really well. cost like $60 and he applied like 4 coats on alll 4, still had some left over. im gonna buy some soon.

note: he has the base level 18 GT, so the calipers in the rear are small.

Only mod I'll ever do was the G2 paint, was easy and looks great, first time I've ever had a car on 4 jack stands.

Did 4 coats, could have done 3 more.

The G2 is an epoxy based paint that I believe is more durable than rattle can stuff. Also, no need for primer or clearcoat.

Which color is that? Looks great against the black wheels...
Copper, they make two shades. Mine is the darker of the two

turned out alright. G2

Fronts are glass smooth, rears are bumpy, because thats their texture. I should of wire brushed them down or something before.

I plan to brush paint mine red, with that two-part epoxy paint. I’ll do them on the car, without disconnecting the brake lines so I won’t have to bleed them when I’m done. I’ll probably pull them off the rotors so I can reach the back sides.
