easy keys that have worked well for me for years, regardless of brand of car.How has durability and/or touch up been for those that have DIY’d their calipers?
Use some sort of paint remover (acetone or the like) to strip off all of the paint. Would need to use extreme caution as anything strong enough to remove the paint easily? Most likely can harm rubber components at or near the caliper. Another option (which is what I'd do) is to clean the caliper, rough it up a bit with some 2000 grit sandpaper, then do a respray in the OEM silver color, then reapply new decals.These are coming out surprisingly good... what are the options if you want to revert back to stock silver color?
What color is that gold?Work in Progress....
Doing a LR to Performance rear swap, might as well paint the calipers. Sanded the calipers and prep for paint, the rears are pain in the ass to paint. Useless holes on the front face of the caliper and the back has too many valleys and random pits.
Couldn't decide which color I wanted so I did some test samples. ended up with Burnt Copper keep its a little more low key, but different.
VHT White Primer
VHT Burnt Copper
High Temp Stickers
SprayMax 2K High Gloss Clear.
Spraymax 2K High Gloss has insane gloss! 2 part gloss with hardener, the real automotive gloss. chemical resistant and chip resistant. Also High Temp resistant. 2K clear is hands down better than VHT clear.
Pro tip on 2K clear: Shoot the first layer closer and wet. Don't shoot it far and tack dry. this will leave bumps.
