Nice write-up! As soon as I get my new rims, which probably won't be until next spring/summer, I will be painting my calipers. I did the calipers on the Bonne without having to take anything apart. I just took extra time in masking off parts. They held up very well.

This time I will be using the brush-on brake paint. I found a kit at Advance Auto that comes with the brake cleaner as well. Hopefully it will work as well as the spray I used on the Bonne.

Default Paint bubbles

How do you stop the paint from bubbling up along the leading edge of the hood?

I can get it done in less time too, but almost three years later mine still look like this:



You might get that durability from a quicky job, but I'll guarentee you will, if you slow down a bit.
