So I thought I would try painting my calipers and report on it. P1020144.JPG
Here is the factory job that is so common.
After washing the caliper well, I sanded it with 320 grit paper. Just enough sanding to rough it up a bit. Then washed it again. While washing you have to be careful about not getting water inside.
This is caliper paint you can pick up at any auto parts store for about $10.
I think they turned out alright for about 3 hours work. I don't expect the sharpie job will hold up too long. I think I will take a flat life to the Nissin until it shows silver. Unfortunately I can't post pictures with them on the bike. The paint takes 7 days to cure and it is still cool here. When I get them on I will post new pictures
