What happened if the anodized coating is beat to hell? The rears got beat to hell in freight shipping. How do I prep bare aluminum, with what for brake temperatures? Thanks guys & gals

Um, this is after like 2 minutes of sanding with 320. Does that silver layer mean I went too deep?

Hello I am a bit confused with the whole paint/powdercoat issue. Your write up is very informative but with your instructions you are baking the calipers in the oven with the pistons and seals in place? The temp of the oven is very close to powder coating temps but all the powder coating threads say to remove the pistons and seals?

Any tips on what to do if these are stripped? I cleaned the Brembos in degreaser and picked out the brake dust in the caps, however I managed to strip quite a few of them. I'm not sure how to remove them now, they're torqued down quite well from what I recall of the few I did remove. I'm nearly 100% I can't fit a drill in there so I'm at a loss.

Please halp.

I went classic Red w/ White




I pretty much did the same thing as the OP. VHT 900 degree red > decals > Rustoleum 500 degree clear engine enamel. It turned out better than I thought it would.

Well, this thread is old but it seems to be the definitive thread for respraying Brembos so I'll ask it here so that it hopefully will help others with the same question.

The torx screws that hold the pad sliders in, did you guys use threadlock on them when you reassembled the calipers? It looks like they had some from Brembo. If so, what kind did you use?

Pad sliders.... Seems like alot of work to take something off that you won't see and will turn black in a few days anyway.

I am very confused with the baking the calipers, isn't there a crossover seal inside the calipers? and the seal for the piston?

If they're getting the calipers powder coated then they are removing all the seals and everything before having it baked. They'll more than likely be 'rebuilding' the calipers once they have been repainted.

I don't imagine the heating the paint to 100c would matter that much. Just think, its a hot day (40c) and you're racing around a track as fast as you can possibly go and you're brakes start to almost glow their getting so hot. If the seals can stand up to that, I think they can take an hour or so in an oven at 100.
