    Caliper respray

    The paint on my Brembo calipers are chipped and faded. Any recommendations for respraying the Brembo calipers? Inclusive of the Brembo decals and clear lacquer to protect the decals. I already bought the caliper rebuild kit to replace the pistol seals after the respray.
  4. Heard about this fella, Yas in the VAG forum.... dozens of them there engaged him to respray their rims / calipers and all came out very happy with the effects.

  8. Hi all, Just like to share a very good & cheap lobang with all of you. I've had a real hard time locating caliper painter for the job. In the market I've only managed to get a few of them right now. However, many of them charges much higher as it involve taking out of wheel and spraying the caliper. There is actually no different for the finishing of our stock calipers by spray or paint as out caliper's surface is uneven and rough. Thus, I have decided to go for the cheaper alternative of painting. Below is a few of the choices. Please do not flame me as I hope this will benefit all the bros here looking for this service, as I had a real hard time locating them in the car market. 1)Name : SOH Brother-shop Service : Spraying Appointment : Only weekday with appointment Price : 2/5 Website : nil 2)Name : Nightz Concepts-shop( Look for dave ) Service : Spraying Appointment : Everyday with appointment Price : 1/5 Website : just google nightzconcepts 3)Name : streetcalipers-freelancer Service : painting. Appointment : Weekend only Price : 5/5 website : www.streetcalipers.blogspot.com I've chose streetcaliper to do this job. Pros: 1)Very good price 2)Did not take out rim as he said he was afraid alignment etc will not be right after wheel being taken out. 3)Very nice finishing, imo same as spraying 4)Very clean job, no stains etc on rim and any other where else. Cons: 1)Long working hours, he did about 4 hours for my ride but I guess it should be about the same with other shops? 2)Need to leave car keys with him because I want to have my lunch at the nearby area, but I did jot down his IC and took a photo of him. He also passed me his student card in exchanged. For pricing, i think it is not advisable to post it here, do pm me I'll tell you the pricing they quoted me fro all 3 company. Cheers, P/s: Please do not flame me, this is purely for the benefit for those who are looking for this service, as I really had a hard, hard time finding.
  9. hiz guys, encounter something which caught my attention. as refer to the pic attached below, tis area is the connection between your brake hose to the caliper itself. the chip off area is around/outside the threaded part. From wad i know, tis is a 2nd hand brake kits. 2nd user only use for daily street driving & no tracking. I would like to ask the bros/sis here: 1) anybody knows wad causes the damage, due to- a) hard braking b) normal wear & tear issue due to long usage c) OR any others reasons? Until now it still puzzled me. [confused] Perhaps other bros have met tis kinda of cases b4, can kindly enlighten me. many thanks in advance for all the input. chip off pieces damaged area

  11. Hi bros, Want to paint my brake calipers black. As my rims is ADVAN RG2, the space in between the spokes allows me to paint it without taking out the wheel. That's a good thing, if not it's gonna be real hard to remove those nuts! Thus, I would like to do a DIY job, but without any knowledge and experience. Hopefully from experience bro here please advise me on the following questions. 1) What kind and brand of paint and where can I get them? 2) Equipment needed to paint. 3) The procedures and ways of painting it. 4) Result of painting vs spraying. Please do share and comment on what I should look out for during this DIY. Cheers, Jon.

Or do u guys have any workshop to recommend for spraying of caliper at a good prices? I need to do it asap since the brake still not yet install on my ride, at least i can save for labour in future if i wan to re-spray.. Anyone?
