Calipers Cleaned

Post by DaddyDarren » Mon Apr 01, 2019 8:13 pm

Wheels off this weekend & gave them a thorough clean outside face & inner. Also gave calipers a wash too ready for Spring/Summer outings. Had these painted a year ago & still look like new...

Apart from a brush what did you use to clean them?

Did you paint them yourself. If so, brush or spray & make of paint & supplier. I am looking to do the rears on my Brembo braked Range Rover. The fronts are perfect but the rears use a different paint which is ****. They have already been replaced twice under warranty

Hammerite is regularly used is for this purpose. I used it successfully on my Lotus Elise. The decals can be bought on eBay.

No. Mine were the base cast grey jobbies. Had not been looked after & were dirty, greasy & unloved.

BCS are world renowned & offer a number of services depending on your requirements.

These were taken off car, cast smoothed, multi-layer primer, top coat (Candy Apple Red) & clear lacquer top coat with the decals underneath. Check out their website, they work with all top end stuff, including your Brembo. They would come out looking better than out the factory. Highly recommended.

I'm considering getting mine done by BCS - out of curiosity, did they turn it around in a day?

Hi Darren

What make of jack/supports do you have & is it reliable? Same question for torque wrench..... just need some good quality tools before I risk getting my alloys off!
