I'd been putting it off for a while, but I finally got around to painting my brakes bright red to match the R/T in the grill.

I think the paint I used was VHT brand from Autozone, costs 8 bucks! And it took about 2 hours, maybe a little longer.

Not bad. Think I might do this on mine. Did you take the calipers off?

Nah, I just taped the discs and covered everything with this thick, paper towel stuff.

It's definitely worth the effort, I have gotten tons and tons of compliments. People seem to like my brakes more than my truck! :LOL:

Have the stuff to do mine but need to wait till a couple of buddies can come over so that we have enough jack stands to have all 4 wheels off at once
