Thumbs up Painted My Calipers and Hubs

This was my Saturday project. I decided my calipers needed to be dressed up a bit. I was also tired of looking at my rusty hubs...a little G2 brushable caliper paint ...and problem solved!

I decided to go with black for the calipers, so I ended up with a fairly understated OEM look. I used silver on the hubs.

DIY here.


Front







Rear





Hub




Wheels mounted

Thanks! I thought about silver for the calipers also...I think that would have looked good as well. This was quite a bit of work, but worth it!

Looks fantastic. I've used G2 caliber paint on a number of cars already with great success.

Thanks guys! The G2 was pretty easy to use and I'm very satisfied with the way it turned out.

Thanks. Red could be cool, it may be hard match the reds though. You can request a color swatch to help make a determination. The G2 website also says they will make custom colors, they just need the paint code, it does cost extra though at $100-$130. Black, on the other hand, would be a sure thing. Good luck.
