    Default Brake caliper paint.

    What colour looks best? Not looking to uprate the calipers but they are looking a bit sad and need a tidy.

    Soz, car is silver. Is it worth attracting attention to what are, in effect, standard brake calipers?

    Ok, blue it is, gonna try and find a dark/Royal blue. Spray or brush? I assume the prep is to wash/scrub, use brake cleaner, rinse, dry, primer, 3 or 4 coats of paint. Any need to lacquer?
