This is my project for today, I was going to order Cobra brakes for the back to match the front, but I've decided on just painting them to match. I picked up a jack, torque wrench and duplicolor for under $50 at Autozone. $200 for new pads and rotors at Discount Tire, and I saved $200. Has anyone sanded the caliper before painting? I think you could get a smoother result.

on my front one i sanded them a little and it was smother the first coat, but then to get it to be really smooth you have to get something like 600 and sand a couple layers before your last. but don't sand the last layer and it might come out smooth.

the instructions on the paint that comes in the duplicolor kit say you should sand the caliper first. it helps make it really clean so the paint sticks. i just did this project over the past couple days and i think it looks really good, and the kit was only 15 bucks.
