It's real easy. Just make sure you have a torque wrench (or access to one) so that you ensure your wheels won't "fall off" while you're driving.

You cannot paint the calipers and not paint the drums, its like putting on two different colored shoes. Anyway what about wheel cleaners? Does wheel cleaner eat away at the caliper paint?

It sounds like everyone is in agreement that the G2 paint is superior. I will probably opt for green or orange -- red is too standard now.

i just did mine with the caliper paint kit......sometimes the directions they give you sometimes go overboard but its all good......just need lots of time and patients.......number 1 rule make sure the caliper is clean as possible
