    Thread: I painted my calipers

    1. 05-14-2004 12:53 AM #1
      I havent had my golf that long but its time for the modding to begin.
      i ordered some Ate rotors from virtual world parts and some hawk brake pads from tire rack. i thought it would be the best time to paint my calipers and wanted to give my rotors a little more bling

      there going on this

      Well you probabaly live with your parents.. and I know if I did that to my dad's grass he would kick my ass...
      BTW nothing you have pictured are calipers.. and paint on the braking surface of the pad or rotor is a very bad idea...

      And I thought grass painting was the next Feng Shui....

      anyone else think painting your rotors might be a bad idea? i'm pretty sure after a few brakes it will all burn off but what happens if the pads don't catch? and are those brake pads or calipers you sprayed?

      what is it about the color white that makes you think you'll have more bling? I'm le confused as to why you would paint them, regardless of the bling factor

      Please clean those off or go get them milled- how are your brakes going to work with paint on the braking surface

      let's keep it constructive guys. everyone was a newbie at some time.
      but ya, those are rotors. not calipers.
      so don't paint them.
      you must be a previous honda owner.

      please, it is just as possible that he is a previous suzuki swift owner.

      Braking surfaces shall remain clean and clear of any foreign substances at all times. Rust doesnt count. Paint does.
      Seriously dude, that was a bad idea, as the others in this thread have pointed out. Odds are that it will just rub/burn off the first few times you use the brakes, but I wouldn't chance it- take the paint off before you reinstall those, if you haven't already.

      Well looks like you waste a good amount of money in braking equipment. I advice you check the DYI before trying to do things on you own. Oh well it happens to everyone. We are human and make mistakes. Just make sure you don't put those on your car. It would be like not having any brakes at all. I think you can get the rotors resurface to get the paint off if paint thinner doesn’t work. Yet I would be too embarrassed to take them in to do that. And the pad are useless so throw those away. I suggest you throw all that way and pretend it never happened. Oh and get a new screen name to get a fresh start because people will remember this….
