I used VHT Caliper spray paint on my calipers. I masked off with painters tape the areas I didn't want to spray. Masked the rotors so I didn't overspray them. (Calipers are red and rotors are silver). I didn't even remove the calipers.
I bought silver caliper paint for the rotors and paint them each time I replace them. I mask off the braking area and spray the rest.
I put the tires back on the car. Let it sit for about an hour (go in and eat dinner or watch a tv show) went out and drove the car and did some aggressive stops.
It bakes the paint right on.

That was 5 years ago. They still look good and I live in the salt belt. I have retouched them up a little each time I do a brake job. (city driving is killer on brakes)
You don't have to wait 24 hours.

Oh, and your car still looks great.

I don't think Amanda has been here for quite awhile- I think she is very busy in school... Although she does have a very nice HD!

Sorry I haven't been around. sad.gif School can be quite over whelming at times.

Yes I stuck the lights in the oven to loosen the glue.

Sadly, I traded in my 08 Elantra SE for a 2012 Elantra Limited with the Tech Package. He is no longer with me. He was sold to someone else in under a week. I put the stock grill back on before trade in so my INCUS grill is for sale. I want to get the rock chips fixed in it first though. My rims will be going on my 2012. I need to get new tires for those rims. The stock tires on the MD are crap. That's why I didn't transfer them over.

How much for the incus grill?

I'm sorry to hear you turned it in... I loved how your HD looked.

Well currently the grill is in PA. I am in VT at school. In May, I plan on going home and getting it repainted to get rid of the rock chips in. It currently is flat black with a red accents on it. I haven't determined the price because I have to see how much it is going to be to get it re-painted which I won't be able to do until May.

I will make a thread for my MD. Let me do go that now. smile.gif
