Painting Brembo Calipers
A recent restoration of Brembo brake calipers for one of our customers.
Originally the calipers came to us in black, the old paint was aged, flaking and faded.
Our plan of attack for painting these calipers was to machine sand and wet sand to a paintable surface.
We decided to use 2pack auto body paint for a shiny and professional finish.
We also added M3 decals ( stickers) to the calipers as per the customers request.

How to Paint your Calipers
The brakes and brake power is not affected by painting near the brake assembly.
Places where paint should not be applied are the surface of the disk hub where the alloy wheels connect to the base of the hub.
Brake lines are not painted and kept chemical free.
Brakes are one of the most important features on a vehicle and we take every precaution to ensure the brake system is 100% safe.

Painting Calipers While they are on the car VS Off the car
Deciding how to paint your brake calipers will depend on a few factors and this includes.
1. Your budget
2. Your time
3. The tools you have available
4. Automotive Knowledge
5. Type of Car
6. Reason for Painting them in the first place
If you are restoring a classic vehicle such as a mustang or baracuda or porsche or old ferrari or old hot rod or have a long stretching budget then taking the calipers off the car and painting them is the best method.
This allows for them to be properly cleaned and de greased in a solution pre prepared , air dried and paint will be applied all over the assembly creating a true painted finish and covering areas that you cannot see whilst the caliper is attached.
The downside to this method is that it requires a period of longer time and in this time you will not be able to use the vehicle.
Additionally nobody will actually notice at a glance the effort you have gone to.
The easier way is to paint the calipers whilst they are still on the car.
This will provide the look of a color caliper and observers would hardly ever notice that the inside un-visible components have not been colour coated.
Painting the calipers whilst still on the car also allows you to finish the job in one day and have access to your vehicle sooner.
Visually there is no difference.
