Default Word of advice.....

well, my scoobie is in the shop yet another time...don't know why yet, but that doesn't really matter.....

my dad was taking the scoobie in to get tuned, and noticed the abs light was on, so told the guys to fix it....well, it turns out that i was painting my calipers, and i got a little paint on the abs sensor.....dont do that! the calipers look REALLY nice, and i'll get a pic as soon as i get the car back, but be very careful not to get any paint on the abs sensor, because then you'll have to buy a new one (25-30$)....just a little advice from experience

I did mine red (my car's black) and it looks good. Didn't hit the ABS senser though. They are a pain in the A** to keep clean. But worth it.

I painted them blue. my car is silver, and when driving the blue looks tight through the GT rims. if you don't use actual brake caliper paint, then make sure you use heat resistant paint. oh yeah, and dont spray the abs sensor!

Post RE: What Color?

Hi, I'm new to i-Club. Glad to see fellow Legacy owners! I have been on the USMB for a while now and was referenced over here for some info. Seems like a good board.
I was looking to paint the calipers on my 98 Silver Legacy GT and hoping to find a decent blue or "rally blue" (you know for the extra HP ). Someone over at the USMB mentioned that VW makes good colors for this. Any experience with them?

Also, so I don't eff up the sensor, what exactly is the process for painting the calipers?

I believe what we did was while we were hitting the rotor to get it off, the shock may have just jarred it off.....not sure though....
