Caliper Painting Kit

Red caliper paint is too orange.

The red paint came out too orange and didn’t match your catalog picture or the red on the can label. I am not satisfied but don’t want to trouble with painting the parts again.

Works amazing

In the process of restoring a bmw e36 and used this to repaint my calipers. Worked amazing and made them look like new again!

Excellent customer service.

I purchased a POR-15 brake caliper painting kit. It was easy ordering it from the POR-15 website and it arrived quickly. Unfortunately, when I decided to use the kit a month or two after receiving it the lid to the rust preventative coating was adhered to the can. I tried opening it with a flat blade screwdriver, a paint can opener and even needle nose pliers. It would NOT open. I didn't want to destroy the can or get paint all over my hands opening it.

Thankfully, POR-15 customer service is top notch. I contacted them and told them my problem. They agreed to send me another kit "on the house."

I recommend buying their caliper painting kit despite the setback I had. They were more than willing to remedy my problem and their paint is FAR superior to other paints on the market.

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.
