Where can I get my brake calipers painted professionally?
It looks like they forgot to do them on the Focus ST ....

I painted mine with normal Dulux Gloss paint - post office box red. Had them like that for almost 2 years now and no problems, no fading, cracking or flaking. Just prepare the area to be painted correctly and the paint will stick. However, I am not hard on the breaks, so they rarely overheat. Costs you about R50 bucks and you do the labour 8)

I bought Symex Caliper paint. They have a very nice gloss finish and its ceramic paint. The kink however is that the paint is like taffy! It dries so quickly and sticks to any surface. Very difficult to paint the calipers with that paint. However if you break throught the frustration and view the end product it really looks nice.

No Offence but that is not really my cup of Tea...But like Jet said not everyone has the same taste

I spoke to a guy a few weeks ago about ST's and he said he loved the Car except that he "hated" the Orange one... :shock:

That would be some Steven Spielberg movie about a post apocolyptic war or something where people are not allowed any emotion or creativity. Like Equilibruim....

Oh I think painted calipers looks gd...if they are done nicely. But I agree different strokes for different folks.

Okay .. 10 year Revival of a Thread

Where (in Cape Town) can I go to have my calipers painted professionally. I don't want the bolts and clips and rubbers sprayed over.

I did my 1 car's front calipers, but then got tired to do the rest.

While I'm there I also want the rims sprayed (not plasti dip) anthracite - glossy grey.

close to the Good hope centre in Sir Lowry's road.

This is actually who Ford in CPT uses when requesting wheel colour and calipers, not done in house by them
