Default Painted Calipers 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Sport

I have no idea if people have considered painting their calipers so I thought Id post to give you guys an idea what a G2 caliper paint kit can do. I got it for $40 on eBay and also used wire toothbrushes and brake cleaner to make sure the surface was clean before painting. The paint is a special brush on that hardens nicely. Also took about 4 layers, but since it dries and hardens so fast, I didn't need large gaps in time between layers. If you guys have any questions, feel free to ask!

I like them too, so far my decals have stayed on for over a year. The paint does need touching up from time to time and the paint gets dirty over time. I do my maintenance on them when I rotate the tires.

Looks good. This was one of my first mods. I got the duplicolor kit, it came with everything, including the brush, aerosol cleaner (brake cleaner), paint and even a wooden stick to mix it up. I have had it on them for about 6 months and it is holding up well!
