Working downtown here, I see an almost obscene number of Porsches on a daily
basis. Those bright red calipers have had me jelous since day one.
Not long ago, I put my car on stands for a week, disasembled all the calipers
and caliper brackets from all the wheels, and proceded to clean and paint
them "racing red". After five days of after-work work, and an entire
weekend, she was off the jack stands and looking just as sharp as any
Porsche on the road. The red calipers show nicely through my wheels.
It seems I didn't clean the brakes off well enough. The paint is coming off
in a few spots. I don't know if I want to leave them, or give it a try again.
Being without the car for a week was rather difficult.
