The title pretty much explains it, but I want to see some painted calipers on steel gray mazda 6's....

First of all, your car is glacier silver, like mine. Second, you need to FINISH painting your calipers ;)

I think it looks great the way he did it. Unique and the same thing I have planned for my car in satin black.

Are you guys pretty much using high temp spray paint or have some of you used the brush on high temp paint? On my other car, I used the brush on paint. It came out very nice, but it took several coats to get the color purity I was looking for. I assume spray paint would be much quicker, but that would probably require me to take the calipers completely off of the car (including detaching the brake lines)....

use high temp spray paint by spraying into a paint tray then brushing the paint on the calipers. :yesnod:

G2 brush-on caliper paint kit FTW.

Yeah, I think I will just get the Duplicolor brush on kit like I got for my other car. The results were good, it just took several coats. At least I won't have to take the calipers off...

I will be painting my calipers yellow hopefully within a week, using Duplicolor Caliper Paint. I was going to buy the G2 stuff but when I went to Pepboys they had a special on the Duplicolor, $9.99 a kit, I figure I wouldn't be able to beat that. Haven't heard bad things about Duplicolor so I decided to take the plunge. I'll probably go buy another one incase I need more paint. So far no yellow calipers, I'll probably be among the few (if any). IF YOU HAVE YELLOW CALIPERS, POST SOME PICS!

This is a pic of my Contour SVT, but it should give you an idea of what the finished product will look like since the calipers were painted with the Duplicolor kit.

I have never had to repaint mine and it has been a couple years. There is no reason why you would have to repaint them unless you nicked the caliper when taking the wheel off or putting it on.
