If you're going to repaint the whole caliper, just be aware that it's not high-temperature paint.

Had some brake fluid eat up some paint and it's bigger than just a scratch. Was thinking about just using this touch-up paint from honda since it's about 1/4 the rear caliper. I know it's not high-temp but would this paint be ok (Rev seemed to have had long term luck with it) and would clearcoat be recommended?

Or, has anyone found some high-temp matching paint yet?

I have yet to find a high temp paint yet. Best to give the Honda paint a try, worth the price of admission.

Dude how did Jiffy Lube do that? It looks like that some one was running the wrong rims or that the hubcentric(sp?) spacer wasn't used when the wheels were put on? The spacer helps center the rim on the hub! I had to use them on my blitz and if it wasn't for the guys at Volco I would have run into the same problem but since they knew their **** it saved me this type of headache!

Old post bump of the day, but I'm a little late to the Brembo game.
For those not tracking their car:

Nail Polish....

-Finger Paints "Gift of Gold" discontinued. It was closer than Honda imo..

- ORLY "Glitz" pn 40487 is almost dead nuts. My calipers were beat to death (thanks JapanDomesticMotor), and they look nice now.

HTH,

S.

I just got a set of Brembos and need to touch up the paint also. I've done some research and here's some good info:

Via this forum thread, a hobby model paint brand Humbrol makes a #54 paint which matches perfectly. You can get it only on ebay as it's European and every shop I contacted in Europe won't ship paint, unless you find a local hobby shop in the US that has or can get it.

http://my350z.com/forum/brakes-and-s...p-paint-2.html


I found a color match system for US model paints and I have a local hobby shop ordering me a few bottles of Testors brand 1782 Bright Brass. I'll post pics of how it works.

My car is mainly for AutoX and the track so I hope the temps don't ruin the paint right away. From reading on that forum link above, some people on there track their cars also and had good luck with the paint not burning or fading for a long time.

So I got a couple jars of the Testors/Model Master #1782 Bright Brass paint and touched up my Brembos. I have to say that the color is barely close and I don't recommend it. You may be able to do some mixing with colors to get closer to the gold of the Brembos. I'll probably order some of the Humbrol 54 and finish my calipers. You can see in this photo that the Testors paint doesn't match perfectly but will be fine if you're not worried about a perfect color match, but from a few feet away you'd never tell the scratches are there.

Also, make sure to clean and prep the caliper surface before painting. Apparently I didn't prep all of my scratch spots perfectly because once I held the calipers to install them and the paint came off easily in a few areas as you can see. Once painted, brake cleaner doesn't help either.
