While Brake Calipers are made with performance in mind and not form. Getting your Brake Calipers and or Rotor Hats painted can accentuate the styling of your vehicle’s wheels. At CalChrome, we believe that wheels are a central component in vehicle appearance. Painted Brake Calipers / Rotor Hats can add an often-times needed touch of color.
WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
At CalChrome, our custom paint process for brake calipers stands out as being one of the most professional ways out there to paint your brake calipers. The typical body shop normally just spray paints the calipers which leave parts that aren’t related to the brake caliper painted, and sometimes angles of the caliper aren’t even fully painted. Here at CalChome, we spend time and effort in creating the best finish possible for your brake calipers. We actually remove the calipers from the vehicle to allow for much easier access to the caliper. This also guarantees that the caliper will be fully coated. In the pictures below, you can see a bad example of a painted brake caliper that was painted by a typical body shop. You’ll notice that there are some parts of the caliper that haven’t been covered in paint and other areas of the vehicle aren’t even painted. This is because the company chose to not take their calipers off of the vehicle and chose to spray paint them straight on their vehicle.
Brand X – OEM (Not done by us)
Even the original OEM Porshe Caliper has some missing paint coverage.
Once the color coat is applied and dry, we then use reverse cutouts to act as a stencil to paint on the logo. Different sizes and fonts are available and decided by the customer. Once the logo dries the stencil is removed and then clear coated to encapsulate the logo underneath the clear coat. This process will keep the logo attached to the caliper forever unlike decals that Brand X may use that can burn or peel off.
BRAKE CALIPER CUSTOM PAINT OVERVIEW
The necessary steps we take to paint brake calipers
Customize your rotor hats
What is a Rotor Hat? A Rotor Hat is the grey unfinished portion of the rotor that the wheel bolts to. Many times the rotor hat is covered by the wheel and on this Porsche application, you can see the improvement by finishing the rotor hat in matt black to complement the other black on the vehicle. As seen in the pictures above. Please contact us for pricing.
