Nice! I didn't think to use paper to cover my brake pad, the back side of it is as blue as the caliper lol. Love the color of the rims. I'm assuming it's plastidip and if so that's the exact same color I'm doing with the exact same rim and car color.
I'm talking about the rims lolDo NOT use plastidip!!
Brake pads and calipers can easily get hotter than 400 degrees Fahrenheit (F). Plastidip is only meant to withstand around 200F. If you spray them it will melt right off and leave a mess. What Mrhawiibound probably used was VHT Caliper Paint which is meant to withstand 900F. It's inexpensive and you can buy it at places like Auto Zone, Pep Boys, or O'Rileys Auto Parts (see link below). Before you spray them you'll want to either sand them down and/or use VHT Aerosol Caliper Cleaner (see link below); this removes oils and grease.
You can buy both can for under $15 US Dollars.

Thanks for all the love! I used this to paint it. View attachment 84346
And for the wheels i actually sanded them down used primer and actual wheel paint. Didn't wanna go with plastidip because of the matte finish that it has when it dries. I wanted it to look legit haha. In person you can tell its not plastidipped but for some reason it looks like it is from the pictures.

Oh and for the back i don't think I'm gonna paint that red. It's a drum so i think that'd be over board with the red lol. If and when it starts to rust I'll probably spray black over it again. If i had rotors I'd probably spray it. I also removed the brake pads and took off the caliper (without disconnecting the brake line of course) because i wanted to be safe. Just wanted to make sure NO paint got on or in anything except the rotors..
Yeah, feel free to get some pics, I'd like to see! I really like the blue and yellow combo! I see a lot of people do red calipers on a blue car and while I could think of worse color combos it wouldn't be my first choice.Looks Great. Red is the way to go with black. I had a yellow theme workin' when I did my G8. I did my wife's Trans Am in a medium blue Jukebox Juliet (sorry, I don't have any pics of it). I'll try to find the can and take a picture asap.
Pics when done! I wanna see what black and blue looks like.I'm doing a black/blue with mine, so won't be as cool as the black/red combo going on here, but I'm partial to blue.
