Brembo Monoblocs ...painting

I have a nice pair of Silver Brembo Monobloc Calipers.

One of the calipers has a scratch or two ( nothing major ) and I am considering painting them Satin Black. I've seen this colour on someBrembo Calipers and it would look real trick against my gold wheels

I want to do a pukka job so how do I prep the anodised silver finish to take the paint..Do I need to etch prime ?

Has anyone in the forum tackled this kind of challenge before and maybe give me a few pointers ?

Cheers

joe

Only ever done this on a car before Joe, simply cleaned the calipers with brake cleaner, washed off with lots of water, and then used a brake caliper specific paint (gloss red).

Worked a treat and lasted till I sold the car. Simple job really. I hand painted it on and the finish was pretty good.

Joe,
here is what I did to nissin caliper, part out all the rubber shield and bolts, clean it with acetone, high temp primer, high temp paint, and bake at 250 agree for 3-6hrs.

Thanks Guys,,,NIce work Phil.

I'm specifically looking for the correct method to apply paint to an anodised finish...I don't think you can just prime it and paint or it will lift soon after.....

The car brake calipers were originally anodised (black) Joe, the special caliper paint just bonded to the caliper body assembly. Certainly never lifted once painted on and was very durable, I used to jet wash the car and wheels with no problems.

Joe,
if you don't bake the calipers after your final coating, brake fluid will take the paint off 100% sure.

I think I'll sand off as much of the anodised finish as I can and then etch prime before spraying with caliper paint..I'll use a black satin finish..not matt and not too glossy.

There's no rush but I kind of like the look of the black....It's what Batman would choose ha ha
