Brake caliper painting
It won't bond, and will just lift off in bits, or as one piece.
Regarding primer, since it's metal that has been exposed, it should be acid etch primer, then a regular primer used.
Sorry rafhelp to butt in
Does the same apply to brake caliper paints? Mine are becoming to look dog rough
Also any idea what colour this caliper would have been new. (The car is pure white)
Finally a self leveling brush paint procedure would be good, you see I don't really want to remove the calipers if at all possible, even though I know it's by far a better proposition.
Paul feel free to move this hijack elsewhere.
