Default Caliper Paint

Now then,

I've tried searching and couldn't find anything so:

I've gathered from daffyduck that I can use hammerite for painting the calipers. But I'm looking more into doing this, so does anybody know how I go about it?

Do I have to take all of them off, or can I just remove the wheels and do it like that? How much cleaning down do I have to do because all I got is a sponge....

i did mine red this way with caliper paint bought from ebay, only thing i did slightly different was to slide a piece of paper between the brake pad and the caliper so i didnt get paint on the shoes

after


and from a little further away

They are very dirty. Best way to do it is remove the caliper, put in vice and get a wire brush attachment for an electric drill. They come up like new, nice and silver, ready for painting.

......sorry to but in but just a thought.. I wonder what painted callipers would look like if they were in the same colour as the body. Id have thought pretty cool.

(obviously wouldnt work in black or dark colours).

Easy enough really, I have a silver 307 and have done mine in silver. I also painted the caliper bracket.
