Tips and Hints on Painting Calipers with G2 Paint System

Painting calipers on my FG2 (2007 Honda Civic Si) and I learned some valuable lessons, hopefully this can help someone else. Don't panic if you get paint on the calipers, it wasn't a big deal. Just clean it off afterward using the included brake cleaner spray, it comes off the rotor pretty easily. If it's stubborn just take a razor blade to it which will definitely get it off. It goops up pretty easily. I tried to use thin coats initially but there are so many pits and grooves on the caliper that painting it was tedious, so I started using large goops which made painting quicker, but more clumsy. I mixed the reactor around 2:30pm and I finished painting around 6pm. I checked the paint again around 7:30pm and I could still mix it around, but it was starting to get goopy. Still possible to use it to paint after 5 hours, but it will definitely be harder to work with. Try to get your painting done in 4 hours or less.

How to PROPERLY Paint Your Brake Calipers

This process isn’t difficult, it is just a bit time consuming as you’re painting, and waiting, painting and waiting. I used a dremel, a wire wheel, and 180 grit sandpaper to get the caliper clean. I then used a high heat primer, followed up by my base coat. I let that dry, and then put on some brembo stickers that I picked up from eBay, and sealed it up with a high heat clear coat. If you have any questions regarding the video, you know where to throw them!!
