Default Painted JDM 4 pot caliper in RED with G2 kit

What do you guys think? Think G2 kit is more difficult to apply than a spray can, but it is much more durable and there is no need to use clear coat.

when you first apply the paint, it won't look that good but once paint cures it will turn out much better. G2 caliper paint kit came with enough paint to paint 4 calipers + probably 2 more calipers. It's expensive at $38, but it's well worth it. You don't need to apply primer or clear coat.

$38 isn't that bad - spray cans will likely cost way more when done (2 primers, 1 or 2 clear coat, 2 base paint).

G2 paint kit is pretty easy - make sure you disassemble caliper / bracket / pads / clips / hardware before getting started.
Remove old paint and prep the surface by using sandpaper / wire brush / brake cleaner.
Apply G2 paint by using brush.
Let the paint cure for 24 hours. This kit is by far the easiest to work with as it requires no primer or clear coat (and curing in the oven). However, it involves use of paint brush, which some folks may find difficult to use.
