Ugh. Last night after work I "cleaned" the rear brake calipers as a part of prepping them for paint. What a PITA! It took two cans of brake cleaner and two metal brushes (and I'm not completely satisfied).

I'll need to clean up my man-cave room and figure out a way to hang the calipers over my work table in that room. I'm doing it inside, in the man-cave room, rather than in the garage so I have a temperature and humidity stable area to apply the paint. I'm going to be brushing the paint on as it self levels really nice and I wont have to worry about over-spray (wasted paint).

Another thing that's going to suck is that I'll have a 4 to 6 hour window to apply the paint once I mix in the hardener. Hopefully if I can figure out a way to suspend all four calipers and I'll be able to hit it this weekend.

If these things come out anywhere near the quality of the brakes my buddy did for his yellow BOSS 302, I'll be thrilled! He did his with the same company's paint color matched to his car. It looks awesome!

I pulled all of the masking off the calipers this morning and I have to say, I'm pretty happy with how they came out!


On a negative note though, installation was stopped in it tracks due to a bad banjo bolt. A little of the thread on one of the bolts is damaged and I don't want to risk messing up the threads on the caliper. After running to Advanced Auto and Napa, I learned that no one stock these bolts! So this is as far as we got today...

Question: The new stainless brake lines came with aluminum washers. Should I chuck them and get copper washers?

hmmmmm yeah I probably would, I thought copper was standard . . . though if it is a high quality kit you would think they would know what washers to use with their kit

paint looks awesome!

Yeah I think I will chuck them and just buy new copper washers.

On a side note, I ordered four new banjo bolts today at a whopping 9.80 a bolt!!!!
OUCH!!!!

For anyone who wants to see the difference between a remanufactured one and a used brembo. Here it is. I couldn't find a diffrence besides one saying fomoco and Brembo, and the other not saying it. And if you're wondering why I bought one of each, it's because I couldn't find any Passenger side Remanufactured ones.
