Calipers Services FAQs

Most frequently asked questions and answers of Wheels & Calipers Services

How much does it cost to get calipers painted in Vancouver?

In Vancouver, the cost to have calipers painted typically ranges from $100 to $300 or more per set. Prices vary based on factors such as paint type, color choice, labor, shop reputation, and caliper size. To get an exact quote, it’s best to contact local auto body shops directly and compare prices.

Is painting brake calipers legal?

Painting brake calipers is generally legal, but there are some important considerations. The paint should not obstruct any safety markings or interfere with the brake’s function. It’s crucial to use high-temperature, brake-safe paint to prevent heat-related issues. Always follow safety guidelines and consider the potential impact on warranty or insurance coverage.

Which caliper paint is the best?

The best caliper paint depends on your specific needs and preferences. High-quality options from reputable brands like G2, Dupli-Color, and VHT are often recommended. Look for paint that is heat-resistant, durable, and available in a color you like. Reading reviews and considering professional advice can help you choose the right paint for your calipers.

Does caliper paint last?

Caliper paint can last for an extended period if applied correctly and maintained. Proper preparation, using heat-resistant paint, and regular cleaning can help ensure longevity. However, exposure to heat, road debris, and wear and tear may eventually cause fading or chipping, necessitating touch-ups or repainting.

Does caliper paint need primer?

Most high-quality caliper paints are formulated to adhere directly to clean and properly prepared metal surfaces without the need for a separate primer. However, it’s essential to follow the specific instructions provided by the paint manufacturer, as requirements may vary. Proper surface preparation is crucial for successful caliper paint application.

How long does brake caliper paint take to dry?

Brake caliper paint typically dries to the touch within 1 to 2 hours. However, full curing and hardening can take 24 to 48 hours or longer, depending on factors like temperature and humidity. It’s crucial to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations for drying and curing times to ensure a durable finish.

How do you prepare a brake caliper for painting?

Gather Materials: You’ll need brake cleaner, sandpaper (usually 120-220 grit), masking tape, and high-temperature caliper paint.

Remove the Caliper: If possible, remove the caliper from the vehicle for easier access and painting.

Clean Thoroughly: Use brake cleaner to remove dirt, grease, and brake fluid. Ensure the caliper is completely clean and dry.

Sand the Surface: Gently sand the caliper’s surface to create a rough texture for better paint adhesion. Remove any rust or old paint.

Masking: Use masking tape to cover areas you don’t want to paint, such as the brake line and bleed valve.

Apply the Paint: Follow the paint manufacturer’s instructions for application. Typically, you’ll apply multiple thin coats, allowing each coat to dry before applying the next.

Curing: Allow the paint to cure fully as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Reassemble: Once the paint is dry and cured, reassemble the caliper and reinstall it on the vehicle.

What color should I paint the calipers on my car?

The choice of caliper color is a matter of personal preference and style. Common options include red, black, silver, and blue. Consider your car’s overall color scheme and your own aesthetics. Some may prefer a contrasting color to make the calipers stand out, while others opt for a more subtle or factory-matched look.
