Has anyone actually put their calipers and or rotors, in the oven as per the instructions on the can?
It says 200F for 1hr. Just curios.

I did mine by painting them....then let them sit for a couple of hours. Then I drove and let the brakes bake themselves by heating up. However I did not use VHT, I used High Heat engine enamel. It's lasted really well.

Mine still look good a little dirtier but that is because it is winter here and can't keep the darn things clean.

I only did the fronts maybe this year i will get some time and do the rears. :biggrin:

I actually had them yellow but hated them. So I went with grabber green. Everyone does red, but my truck is green. I thought it would be too christmassy (not a word, I know.)

I just paint mine with Rustoleum. Works fine. Have to renew it regularly anyway due to road crud and brake gunk. They don't get THAT hot unless one is in racing conditions.

I actually used:

But I have heard good things about the VHT. In the end though, it all comes down to prep. Get those things clean before applying your paint. :thumbsup:
