    Default Painted My Brake Calipers- Check 'em out!

    So I was going to buy drilled rotors and paint my calipers, but after inspecting the brakes I found that they have less than 50% wear after 71,000 miles, so I decided to wait and just paint the calipers instead. I bought the G2 paint kit that some other members have used and I must say it's pretty good product, and then I also added some Hi- Temp silver Silverado decals for an added touch. Turned out pretty well I must say, now I can't wait for my brakes to wear out!

    Hey Adam they look real good. I just bought those decals for my truck, and I was trying to decide between the duplicolor kit or the G2. I guess you vote for the G2?????

    Man they look great, they really get set off by those rims and add some character to the wheels. Nice job by the way.

    Cool Painted my brake calipers

    How many calipers does the G 2 kit do. My wife wants me to do here Trailblazer with 4-wheel disc. Of course she wants red to match the silver exterier paint. also your truck looks good.

    1 kit is enough to do all 4 calipers, of course mine is an '05 so it has drums on the back so I have paint left over!
