Default Proper Way To Spray Calipers

So I want to match my calipers to my engine plastics. The problem is that it only comes in a spray can. All the other times Ive painted calipers it was with a brush,pretty easy to do.

Whats the best way to spray them? I dont want to completely remove them becuase I dont want to have to bleed them...any suggestions?

I just reprinted my calipers (well Dstruc actually did the painting part) I found it easier just to take off the caliper and spray them. If you dont want to take them off just do a good job masking anything you don't want painted. I still have to do my rears and I don't think ima take those off to paint them.

I thought Dstruc did the watching part....


I dont really want to take them off. Maybe this would be a good time to put on some SS lines...

Yeah, I want to paint mine as well and I don't need to mess anything up. I saw a post recently where someone was painting their calipers and they taped off everything without removing them. The question is, how long do I need to let them sit before I can drive again?

Alright so I did mine the other day with them on the car and they came out really good.

1. Take the wheel off
2. Clean the caliper really well with degreaser spray and sand it down a little to get the rust off
3. Rinse with water and dry
4. Tape off the parts of the rotor closest to the caliper
5. Place garbage bags on the fenders, and inside the wheel well, as well as one around the rotor
6. I gave the calipers 3 coats, and drove the car like 6 hours later with no problems.

When we say cover parts you don't want painted, we don't mean half the car.. It's cool buddy, giving you a hard time but that is over kill.
