How long do painted brake calipers last?
Brake calipers may last for three to five years. The paint AODetail uses is durable and will last as long as it is properly cared for, such as not using a power washer close to the caliper or using caustic wheel cleaners.
How much does it cost to paint brake calipers?
Pricing for brake caliper painting depends on the professional you decide to visit, the quality of their paints, and if you add vinyl graphics. At AODetail we charge $500 for a set of four calipers with standard colors such as red, black, silver, and yellow and $600 for custom paint if available.
How long does caliper painting take?
While it only takes a couple of hours to paint the calipers, at AODetail it’s our policy to keep the vehicle overnight and use IR lamps to ensure proper curing. If a customer should drive off too soon before the caliper is cured, premature chipping or flaking could occur.
How should I take care of my brake calipers?
To ensure the longevity of your paint, we recommend staying away from harsh chemicals and wheel acids when caring for your car. It’s also important to remember to not get too close to the calipers when power washing.
What temperature does the paint last up to?
Our high temp enamel paints are resistant up to 900 degrees Fahrenheit.
What colors does AODetail provide?
