Has anyone used the G2 System? Are you happy with the results?

Here is a link to the lowest cost for the system I have found. Can you beat this cost?

Dupont makes a good paint kit, im from canada and i purchased the kit for 19.99, its in a box comes with a can of paint, aersol cleaner, mixer and a brush, it comes in silver,nlack, yellow, green, red, i used the silver on my slotted and drilled rotors, and left the calipers black, it looks good ill post a pic of the box and my rotors.

Very nice pick of your car. Looks great.

My basic problem is that the only level surface I have to work on is in my garage and I do not want to use spray paint in the garage. My driveway and street are on an incline and I do not want to put the car up on 4 jack stands unless the surface is level. I estimate that the car will need to be up on jack stands for 24 hours.

Its brush on, drive your car for a bit, sit and relax for a bit, pop the wheels off and the brake calipers and rotors should slightly warm, paint it on and let it bake, i did two wheels at once no need for the 24 hour, just make sure its goona saty dry with no rain, it should look really good, while you got the wheels off spray some rockergauard in the wheel wells and make them look new.
