Alright so ive been wanting to paint my calipers but havent gotten to it. i finally bought a kit,

http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/Dupli-Color-Red-high-performance-caliper-brake-paint-kit/_/N-25yv?counter=2&filterByKeyWord=caliper&fromString=search&itemIdentifier=539677_0_0_

after thinking about it i realized that i wanted blue instead of the red so i bought this

http://www.autozone.com/autozone/accessories/VHT-Paints-11-oz-bright-blue-caliper-paint/_/N-25yv?counter=0&filterByKeyWord=caliper&fromString=search&itemIdentifier=419006_0_0_

ok so heres my questions:
1) will one can be enough for all 4?
2) can i just do the same steps as the kit says but just replace the paint?
3) if anyones ever used the blue spray paint, is it as bright as it is in the pic or is it dark like on the cap

thanksss and sorry for the dumb questions:D

The spray paint has 3 more ounces to it. But it's a spray so a lot of it is going to be wasted but you're either going to need to really mask off around your rotors or remove the caliper to spray them.

idk much about the spray but i can tell you the brush on paint is awesome...i used it and it goes on thick, just do 3-5 coats and it'll be awesome. i did all 4 with the brush on and still have half a can

I bought a kit made by G2 for my GTO. It was a 2 part epoxy and it was painted on, but dried smooth. worked well and one kit did the entire car for like 30 bucks.

thanks! and i went with the spray, it was great because if i forgot to tape somewhere and some paint got on it all i had to do was rub it with some steel wool and it went right away:cool:
