step 1) remove brake dust, grease, and rust using a brake caliper cleaning agent of some kind. Also use a wire brush if you can.
step 2) Sand your calipers using 320-grit sandpaper. Really rough them up. Then use some more brake cleaner.
step 3) Mask off your car's corner body panels, the wheel wells, the struts and hoses, and finally, the brake rotors. Take the time to mask the bleed valves on the calipers too.
step 4) Apply primer to the caliper in a very light, speckled coat, then move to the next caliper until you've applied a coat to all 4. Do this 4 times, gradually getting heavier, but avoid letting the paint run (it's okay if it happens in the primer). Try to do this as quickly as possible.
step 5) Apply your base color (THIS PRODUCT) using the same method as in step 4: light coats multiple times. I suggest a sweeping method, rather than just spraying hard. Do NOT allow the base color to run.
step 6) Apply a clear coat using the same method as in steps 4 and 5, but be careful not to overdo it. Clear coats can run more easily than base colors. The paint should be looking thick and glossy by this time.
step 7) Wait an hour. Drink a beer or something.
step 8) Remove your masking. Gaze upon your new calipers. Then, use some brake cleaner to remove any overspray from the brake rotors or undercarriage areas. Do NOT use brake cleaner to clean body panels, as it will probably remove the paint.
step 9) put your wheels back on. wait a few more hours. THEN drive your car pretty hard, making sure to go fast, and brake hard. This will heat your brakes up. The paint needs to cure at 200ºF, which means you need to drive and brake repeatedly. Don't go too nuts.
That's it! All finished.
- Bright red color
- Good paintcan w/nozzle, plenty of paint volume to use (up to 8 calipers if used sparingly)
- Easily sprays paint from 8 - 10 inches away
- Dries w/in 1 hr! Completely dry w/in 24hsr
- checkout the uploaded photo
- Put in extra time to prep the caliper surface for painting. De-grease, sand, dry! Take care to use masking tape/newspaper to protect against overspray.
*Easy to apply
*Pretty resistant to dripping. -Other high temp sprays I've tried in the past almost have the consistency of water. VHT is nice and thick!
*Very nice glossy black finish
*My search for the best brake paint product is now complete...assuming it holds up well over time.
*Fairly strong odor when baking
The ups: its very durable. I also coated them with Optimum Gloss Coat so that washing is a snap, and its ceramic based so it will live through normal daily driving. The paint is ceramic based so it will survive as well. Very nice.
The downside: this paint and clearcoat is rated to 900F. If you are a daily driver this will last many many years!! But - if you are a track event guy? This will simply not last. You will almost NEVER reach 900F on the street. And the paint is good all the way up to 900F, too. Beyond that it fails rapidly and the clearcoat softens and absorbs the brake dust by the truck load.
Overall this is a great prkduct for 99% of users.
If you have surface rust use Metal Ready by Por15 to avoid contamination and flaking in the future.
The thinner the coats you use the more durable the paint will be, also bake it prior to installation because brake fluid WILL eat it if you get it on the brakes during the install (so purge the fluid or bake it).

Couldn't use it because it was too hard to mask off my calipers. Only could use it if I took my calipers off. Not recommended for a beginner.Published 5 days ago by Tyler Mencl

I wire brushed my calipers, washed with brake cleaner, two coats of VHT fast drying color paint and two coats of VHT high temp clear. They look better than new :-)Published 1 month ago by Gary L
