Re: paint for brake calipers and drums

What I'd be tempted to do, would be to apply a coat of smoothrite first, then follow-up with this.

That way, you get more protection from what you'd get from an aerosol alone, but also get to paint it in a colour closer to what you want.

You would be advised to give it a few days between stages to allow the smoothrite a chance to harden, before light keying.



This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
