Hey I was wondering what kind of paint i need to paint my calipers, and where i can buy it. Also if it can even be done at home or do i need a shop to do it? Thanks

Ive never painted them myself but many members on here have painted them. You can do it yourself, you should be able to find the right paint at any automotive store.
Ex. Discount Auto Parts, Pep Boys...etc.

Good luck! Hope I could be of help!

Truplatano i should be finishing mine in a week. I got some pic already give me a week. I'm done with the rear. Just got to do the front. But for quick notes. I sanded my down cleaned them of coarse after sanding. I shot them with high temp primer and then shot them with high temp paint. Then clear coat them . I used my dremel to sand down the calpiers. I'll get some pic up maybe today. Hope this help

im not a fan of the spray. i got some liquid paint that i brushed a bunch of coats on and like one guy said, keep good care of them. like when you wash your wheels, just hit up the calipers.
