powder coating brake calipers

Has anyone had their brake calipers powder coated? How much? Worth it?

Re: powder coating brake calipers

I used the ceramic paint from Eastwood. It works pretty good. You do have to spray it out of a gun if you want a nice finish.

Plus you dont have to take them apart. Just tape up what you dont want painted.

Re: powder coating brake calipers

Mine are not yet installed and figured this would be a good time to do them and even better to powder coat.
I used brush on caliper paint before and wheel cleaner ate the paint. Im wondering if high heat engine paint would work better than the caliper paint.

My body guy suggested the High Temp Engine or Header paint(has to be baked in oven). Haven't gotten mine on the road yet to see how it holds up, but they look awesome. I used a matte silver and a satin clear coat.

Powder coated mine. You have to disassemble them first. It isn't real expensive but time consuming.

Re: powder coating brake calipers

You would have to take them all apart to do them!!! I just had my master cyl,and por valve, and metering hold off valve done, wish I would have done the calipers too!!! but all ready got the back from being rebuilt. Give lonestar caliper a call, they'll did mine and they look great, they have a web site!!!

I did just the same and used Eastwood's grey caliper paint
But I got anal and I disassembled them de-burred and smoothed out any imperfections then spray painted them. Turned out really nice.
