Default Has anyone painted their Calipers yet?

So I am going to upgrade my Ram with cross dimpled and slotted rotors, stainless steel braided lines and better pads. Was thinking of painting my rotors while I was down there. Think they would look good painted with the new hardware and the 22" wheels. Any thoughts or any experience doing this? Any pics???? The pics would be awesome! Since the truck is silver was thinking of painting the calipers a medium metallic blue instead of the standard red everyone else seems to use.

Help me out guys and let me know your experience, which products you used and if you have any pics or not..

Thanks in advance to all!

I have seen rotors powder coated along with calibers and it looks awesome sorry no pics. Im not sure how well the paint would hold up compared to powder coated.

If you seach for "powder coated rotors" you'll find a lot of info telling you that you can't powder coat the whole rotor. Only the inner part where the wheel bolts are not the braking surface. Interesting idea though.

I had good luck with Dupli-Color's product. Didn't chip or flake off, but did fade after about a year and a half (I used red though).

I did this on my old car and plan on doing it to my truck soon as well. I found the stuff that holds up best is actual caliper paint. Any local auto place should have some and its fairly cheap. And blue calipers on a silver truck look amazing. Sry no pics but look at the 04 VW R32s. Thats how they all are and it is a great look!

I used Duplicolor on mine both times. Originally went with red but when I had my wheels powdercoated I went with black and also upgraded to drilled and slotted rotors and Hawk brake pads.
