    VHT

    Works great. Don't forget to clean and undercoat!

    I used this product in conjunction with an appropriate primer and clearcoat, all from VHT, to paint my car's brake calipers bright glossy red.step 1) remove brake dust, grease, and rust using a brake caliper cleaning agent of some kind. Also use a wire brush if you can.step 2) Sand your calipers using 320-grit sandpaper. Really rough them up. Then use some more brake cleaner.step 3) Mask off your car's corner body panels, the wheel wells, the struts and hoses, and finally, the brake rotors. Take the time to mask the bleed valves on the calipers too.step 4) Apply primer to the caliper in a very light, speckled coat, then move to the next caliper until you've applied a coat to all 4. Do this 4 times, gradually getting heavier, but avoid letting the paint run (it's okay if it happens in the primer). Try to do this as quickly as possible.step 5) Apply your base color (THIS PRODUCT) using the same method as in step 4: light coats multiple times... 5/5 Stephen Mahanes (Hyattsville, MD) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent quality paint

    I just finished spraying this product on my new rear rotors. Yes, rotors. All has been painted except for the part that actually makes contact with the pad. Since my wheels leave the brake area pretty exposed I didn't want my rotors looking like rust buckets like my current ones. I prepped the rotors with brake cleaner and some degreaser, Blue-taped the parts I didn't want painted, and then painted 24 hours later. I did one tack coat, three light coats, followed by a thicker coat for that nice finish. The paint didn't try to drip at all, there was no orange peel, and left a very nice shiny black coat. The final step was something I have never done with paint which was stick it in the oven for an hour. The instructions say its necessary so that's what I did. The family complained about the paint smell but not too badly. Make sure you turn on the venting system on your oven first :).Pro's:*Easy to apply*Pretty resistant to dripping. -Other high temp sprays I've... 5/5 R.
