Caliper Painting at Ceramic Pro Auto Spa in Lancaster, PA

Is painting brake calipers a good idea ?

Caliper Painting is a terrific option. It provides your ride with a classy, alluring touch of color. Choose an aggressive red, yellow, or more unconventional color to add sophistication and make your wheels pop. Calipers acquire difficult-to-remove brake dust and road grime as they age. Worse, calipers can corrode with time. We’ll clear out existing filth, rust deposits, and uneven surfaces in the finish before painting to ensure your brake components are in a superb possible condition. A fresh layer of paint protects your calipers from potential rust and makes them easier to clean, keeping them looking new for longer.

How many steps in doing Caliper Painting ?

Caliper Painting includes multiple steps that preserve your brakes’ shiny appearance with a desirable color for your vehicle.

Clean the Surface

We spray specialized chemicals over the calipers and wipe away any brake dust or grime using a clean, dry cloth.

Prepare the surface

It’s critical to start with a clean and fresh surface, so we remove any rust or old paint and wash the surface.

Paint the caliper

Spray a coat of caliper paint into all of the difficult-to-reach areas. Apply 3-4 applications of color, allowing time to dry between each coat

Finish with a clear topcoat.

It is an optional step, but it will provide further protection and shine to your caliper paintwork. After allowing the calipers to dry for 24 hours, you’re finished.
