Repurposed as caliper paint

What I really needed was white caliper paint to paint the SUBARU cast into my GC8 STI front 4 pot calipers. This worked just as well.

Color is off

The paint is awesome, adheres and covers very nice. Only issue is the color (ford corporate blue) is pretty far off in tone and shade.

Application: 

Bare Steel: Remove grease, oil, and other foreign substances with water based POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser then rinse with water. If surface was previously painted, sand with 320 grit sandpaper or a POR-15 Scuff Pad then apply POR-15 Engine Enamel. If surface is bare or rusted metal you must use POR-15 Metal Prep to prepare surface before painting. Spray or brush POR-15 Metal Prep onto surface and keep wet for 10-20 minutes then rinse thoroughly with water. For best results, next apply one coat of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating. When POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is dry to the touch with slight finger drag (approximately 2 to 6 hours) apply POR-15 Engine Enamel directly over POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating.

Apply in well-ventilated area only. Ideal ambient temperature for application is 70°F, but an acceptable temperature range is between 50-80°F. Mix POR-15 Engine Enamel by stirring only. Do not shake. POR-15 Engine Enamel can usually be brushed without thinning. A full coat will usually cover but if a second coat is needed, apply when first coat is dry to the touch (no finger drag) and within 24 hours of first coat.

Dry Time: Wait 4-6 days before starting engine.

Previously Finished or Primed Surfaces: Glossy surfaces should be roughened with 320 grit before recoating. All blistered and loose paint must be removed. Using POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser to ensure that the surface is clean, dry, and free from oil, grease, dirt, salts, and any other contaminants.
