Paint Brake Calipers

I want to have my brake calipers color match painted. Anyone have this done?
Did you do it yourself, and how? Or did you have it done, where, and how much was it? How does it look?
Thanks so much

If you have 20" wheels, painting the calipers can be done without removing the wheels. Just take your time, plenty of masking tape and paper, slightly roll the the car a couple of times on each wheel, a couple of sizes of foam paint brushes, hi temp paint. You will be very happy with the results!!

This is the stuff alot of members here have used. Its easy to use, I highly recommend it.
I also recommend you take your wheels off to do it.!

if you want it paint match your either going to have to have some paint made up into a spray can for you. or go to a body shop unless you have your own gun. id suggest pulling the entire caliper off your car so you can spray the whole caliper front and back. if youve been driving the car its likely the caliper could have some surface rust in spots and you need to get rid of that before you go painting it. although from the pic the challengers calipers look pretty smooth, if found taking a good sander to the calipers can make them a bit smoother then stock and look a bit nicer once painted.

I used G2 on my car. Your best bet is to remove the wheels. G2 will color match your paint code. It is a 2 part high heat epoxy. G2 Custom Color Match Brake Caliper Paint

Hey Blue R/T, where did you get the "Challenger" decal and can it handle the high temp and brake fluids? Thanks

I'm a little worried about buying the cheaper kit with the premade colors. How do I know if the purple will compliment the plum crazy? I'd rather not spend $100 bucks for the custom match kit.
