For those who painted their Calipers, what paint did you get?

I am looking for some Calipers paint, i see duplicolor, VHT and G2, which one will you guys recommend?

And where is the best place to get them?

Thank you very much in advance.

Walmart - Duplicolor
VHT - Canadian Tire

Tried both and they are the same to me. They key is good prep. If possible, take the whole caliper off.

G2 FTW. No competition compared to the others. Duplicolor and VHT will chip off sooner or later. G2 has a lifetime gaurantee. I had to order mine thru tire rack online, don't believe anyone sells it locally.

thank you very much for the info.

So for the G2, can i put clear coat after the actual paint? or G2 paint itself is good enough. I just want to prevent chipping as i don't want to paint it again.

Make sure to properly clean/degrease. If the paint doesn't bond properly you'll be redoing them in a matter of weeks/months.

The G2 is actually a brush on system not spray paint right?
