Cool Painted Calipers on my '07 - Pics Inside!

Hemi Dave and myself tackled the project of painting the calipers on my '07 Ram yesterday before the Houston meet. Used the Duplicolor brush-on kit from O'Reilly's and after two good coats all the way around, that little can of paint is still more than half full.

We used the brake cleaner provided with the kit and a wire brush to clean them before painting.

Here are some pics, beginning with the "before" shots of the fronts.

Thanks guys!

Yep the masking definitely paid off, even with the steadiest of hands doing some of the painting (Hemi Dave).

Cool!

I'm really happy with the glossy finish of the Duplicolor paint myself.

I think black goes better with the theme of your truck anyway. But for me it was either red or blue, and red is just too "loud" for my truck and doesn't go with anything else on it... so I chose blue.

As for the "masking", we were just trying to keep the paint from getting in places it's not supposed to be... lol.
