Just painted the brake calipers as i just fitted up some new RIMS.

They have MUCH thinner spokes so you could see the rusy things..

Here how i went :)

What you think...:p
 
nice
 
That looks good !

What paint did you use ? Looks like a nice finish ! :bannana:
 
:cool:
 
Very nice:rock: . I did mine in Silver but think black might have been a better choice as I do get brake dust sticking and making them look mucky.
 
Gonna do mine in gold ;)
 
Looks really good - well done!

And love the wheels :rock:

Out of interest, did you remove the caliper off the discs......completely remove and strip down, or mask and paint in situ?
 
Looks good. Black or silver are fine, not personally a fan of other colours.
 
I did mine black and they look good. I love the satin finish on yours.
 
Looks fantstic was going to do mine very dark blue to complement my Azurite blue paint but may now change to satin black as the finish looks really good, by the way how long did the paint take to dry?
 
i did mine on the c36 when i changed the pads, left them in situ, wire brushed them, brake cleanered, and painted them with halfords satin engine paint, still looking good
 
When I did mine on Impreza WRX, I completely removed then from the car and prep and painted them in my garage.. its alot of work for a perfect finish, but had gold multispoke wheels and the red STi 4 pots were very much on view :devil:

Paint took only about 3 - 4 mins per cote, then i took 10 - 15 mins before i
put the wheel back on :)
 
If it doesn't rain this weekend I'm going to paint my calipers black. They look very rusty and tatty at the moment.

Good work mate, the look ace!
