How To: Paint the Brake Calipers and Add a Decal

Yesterday I started grinding and sanding down my calipers. Living by the beach does cause a bit of corrosion. It took the good part of the afternoon to get them to a point that I felt it was good for painting.


This morning I taped off the parts and started to coat the calipers.
Rear Before & After two coats

Front Before & After two coats

After waiting three hours I applied the LT SPYDER decals.


All done and wheels on.
