I have a 2003 Arc with 11,000 miles on it, and my front brake cailbers are starting to rust. Anyone else having this problem? I'm sick of looking at them... Has anyone tried a Brake Caliper Paint System Set?
Should I wire brush the rust prior to painting?mike saunders said:your calipers are nice, solid, heat-diffusing cast iron so they'll eventually show some surface rust. you can paint them with high temp paint. google search for "brake caliper paint" and you'll come up with several options.
The kit option comes with cleaning solvent and enough paint for all 4 calipers, but make sure you have a way to get your rears off fast before the paint hardener sets up...
I got this from Tire Rack:saabotage said:there is a good selection on ebay for $23 and thats where I got mine.
I'm not sure if there is an Exp date, but FYI.... The stuff on e-Bay may be ready to expire...NOTE: PaintSystem Sets have a shelf life of six months and must be used between 56-70°F (13-21°C) ambient temperatures.
