painted my calipers white

I got the G2 caliper painting kit in white.

I did it today and I think it looks fawkin awesome.

I also painted my axle ends with black engine enamel paint. Since I am riding on police wheels, sometimes I want the chrome center cap look or sometimes the chrome ring look without the cap.

more pics later

i kno i kno, it lacks the expertise of some good masking skills. To say the very least, this job requires that everything be CLEAN and that you MASK off each tiny area with plenty of coverage.

G2 rocks, plain and simple

You know what would really make that white stand out? Some black caliper decals, check out the Chrysler ones Rich Calnen sells on his site http://www.xenonmods.com/

I've used his caliper decals on two cars now and love them

Looks good but like a few others I would like to see pics of the wheels on but I understand it had to dry before putting wheels back on.

Amen to that! I've used the G2 stuff on several vehicles. Works best if you remove the calipers first so you don't get it all over the place.

I hope his customer service has improved over the last year or two. I had to get two orders refunded because I couldn't get him to answer his phoen or respond to emails aftere waiting 2 months for an order. I did finally re-order some and they are very nice...just took some effort to get them!! :(

i love the garage LOL..... you just bust out the tent and start working. My neighbors would freak, let alone my parents. Plus i was out last night, it was so cold LOL.... but FL doesnt have those issues.

I paint my calipers black pretty much every spring with some spray can high heat stuff. They dont rust or anything by the spring but the paint kinda fades a little, so most of the time its just touch up. Plus i hate how i cant find any police caps for my bearing covers (winter rims).

The white looks great with a white car. They will really stand out too. nice rims will make them even better, thats why i dont bother paining them for the winter, you cant see through my ugly black rims anyway LOL..

Good job
