Hey Gang . . .What is the least expensive way to add red calipers to your wheels?
A can of red paint.
Oh and some masking tape and paper/cloths to cover everything else up.
I've been thinking of painting mine white to match the white interior and white accents I've placed around my deep blue metallic S but then I think of how dirty they will always look.
Preferably extreme high-temperature paint.
Least expensive is to purchase those aftermarket caliper covers off eBay.
Next is a can of high temp caliper paint and some decals. DIY.
You can take your car to a painter and for around $500 have them professionally removed, repainted and installed, or order a set already painted and install them yourself with you sending back your OEM calipers for an exchange.
Be careful. Brakes are kinda important.
I added the Evannex red caliper covers to my S - $250 for set of 4. Adds a nice touch.
But a set and sell yours on eBay
P posers. :-)
Hi Cweber. . .. who installed those red calipers from Evanex for you?
Damn this thread. Until now I never thought how great it would be to have the color of my brake calipers match the color of my car; they were always something to be hidden, not flaunted.
But I did buy red valve-stem caps for $4.
Your local autoparts store should have Dupli-color brake caliper paint kit $20 bucks. Easy to use, spray caliper cleaner, brush on paint. Easy to use.
@lawdude Too funny! He could buy the badge on eBay to match.
I like the red coloured brake calipers, but I think paint colour of calipers also depends on the colour of your vehicle. However, I usually prefer the heat resistant ones as well. You can aslo read the reviews about various caliper paints before making the purchase decision https://carlifeguru.com/best-caliper-paint. I ordinarily use the G2 paints in this regard.
@Yodrak.-I also dropped 4 dollars for the red valve stem caps with a little black T. Silly thing. But, the red calipers are a visual game changer. Do it.
