G2 Caliper Paint?

How many of these does it take to paint all 4 calipers?

I only used one can of the dupli color. Its cheaper and works the same.

G2 is an excellent product and you will have more than enough for several coats with one purchase. Calipers get hot, you need good stuff. I can't speak for duplicolor as I've never used it. I purchased my last 3 sets of G2 on eBay as several sellers there had the best price.

I agree with above - i used the rattle can on my old Integra - never the quality look and durability that the G2 gave me - it was worth the money... I had painted mine black prior to getting my BBK...

The G2 is plenty to do all 4 i used multiple coats until all was gone - it is easier to do as well since you are brushing it on instead of spraying you don't need to mask everything off if you are careful... plus it comes with the degreaser and the paint - and a sticker

Caliper Paint

Dupli-Color makes a brush on like the G2 and it is less expensive and can be purchased through your local NAPA store. One can is more than enough, I have used the Dupli-Color on two different cars and getting ready to do the third and never a problem.

i used the dupicolor on my brembos but my rims are so close to the brembos it's impossible to not knick the paint putting them back on thinking if i ever go to a shop they're definitely gonna jack it all up. Anyone use a clear coat? if so what'd you use?

btw has pretty cheap decals to put on after you paint got my brembo replacements from him and my buddy got some really nice looking lexus ones there too.

i went with dupli color spray in gloss black from napa. I was told that using the brush on stuff isnt going to look as uniform as the spray. i love my painted calipers. I put about 4 coats on each caliper to get the best results. The key is to make sure and use a wire brush to clean the hell out of the calipers. its all about prep time to get a good result. I also used a coat hanger and hung them up so i could paint everywhere on the calipers. take our time and then enjoy a great mod for cheap.

The main difference between G2 and Duplicolor is the temperature ratings. For everyday driving Duplicolor should be fine as they are rated to 500 degrees. G2 is rated to 900+ degrees, and would be the better option for track use and crazy *** aggressive driving. I plan on painting my calipers as well this spring, I'm in for some of ya'lls photos of the recent work. I've been leaning toward G2 paint, however if I like what I see I'd be down for Duplicolor.
