Can't be in a hurry

I used the paint on new calipers, but followed all the same steps that I assume were more for ones that are already in use. Because of the multiple coats and curing time for the anti-rust coating and paint, it took me about 2 days. I guess I could have done it quicker, but I wanted a nice finished product. The final coat of paint looked great and very durable.

very uneven coating, did not cover well

so this is the first por15 product I have had a problem with. I bought the entire kit and followed the directions to the tee. the calipers were taken off, the metal cleaned up and EVERY STEP taken per the directions in the kit. the problem became the top coat/coats. The foam brush tends to leave bubbles and the coating dries unevenly even in a climate controlled environment. the product was not shaken, the foam brush seemed to encourage bubbles in follow up coats and progressively got worse. The yellow does not cover well on darker calipers or even with the included products it takes several coats to not have darker areas showing thru. multiple coats made the imperfections worse. they are good 15-20 footers and you know they are coated but closer observations reveal a very uneven surface


Great product

Looks good!

I was pleasantly surprised by how well these turned out. I did get tired of trying to use a paint brush so I thinned it down a bit and used an airbrush to do the final coat. Looks great and I’m very pleased with the results.

Step 1: Remove all four wheels from vehicle. Calipers don’t need to be removed. Don’t remove brake line.

Step 2: Clean surfaces to be painted with POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser. Spray on the cleaner and brush the dirt, grease and grime with a small scrub brush or toothbrush. Wear protective gloves and glasses when cleaning your calipers. Read directions on POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser container before using.

Step 3: Rinse cleaned caliper thoroughly with water and dry with clean towel. Now apply POR-15 Metal Prep and keep surface wet for 20 minutes and then wash off POR-15 Metal Prep with water and dry thoroughly.

Step 4: Mask off the areas not to be painted. Tape off the brake bleeder screw, brake lines, and caliper piston boots and anything else you don’t want painted.

Step 5: Open the small can of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating and stir, making sure the contents are thoroughly mixed. Using a foam brush (included in your kit) paint the caliper evenly, making sure the coating is evenly applied but not to the point where the paint runs. Because this is a rust preventive coating you want to be sure you don’t miss any spots which could rust later if not covered.

Step 6: When the POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is just dry to the touch, with slight finger-drag remaining, normally in the 2-5 hour range, it’s ready for the POR-15 Caliper Paint to be applied. Open the can of POR-15 Caliper Paint, stir thoroughly, and apply the first coat in thin but even strokes. When the first coat is dry (3 -4 hours), apply a second coat to achieve a beautiful ceramic-like finish.

These products should only be handled when wearing latex gloves, eye protection, and NOSHA approved respirator. Always work in a well ventilated area.
