    Default Caliper Paint - Whats The Best Brand ?

    Lets face it if you do a search on here there are so many diffrent suggestions and for my part this will be the second time I have done my calipers so its not new. Last time I used the Savage kit which gave me a red so of matt look which was OK but not special.

    So - whats the best paint / brand to use ?

    Off the top of my head there is the ......

    • Savage Kit
    • Foliatec Kit
    • E-Tech Kit
    • Race Sport Kit ( Found on Ebay from Jappartsltd )
    • and non specilist Hamerite....
