  • caliper paint

    i'm looking for anybody whos got some extra laying around. i don't really want to spend friggin 35 bucks to buy somehting that will paint 7000 bikes. thats rediculous. also, are the rattle cans any good for calipers?
    if its got 2 wheels or a skirt....i'll ride it.

    Yep, get a rattle can. Calipers are very forgiving and so don't need much skill...just make sure you take them off, remove the pads and mask the bits like the pistons and bleeders etc.
    Maybe you could sell the remainder of the can you use to make up for your losses...if not you could always have a bake sale to brake even.

    Get it?...'brake' even as opposed to 'break' even? I really should think of getting into marketing.

      i'll do anything for a buck. and i'm always looking for deals. i was thinking about marketing but the Ohio State college of business is waaaayyy too competitive for me. do i have to get high temp paint or will plain old rattle can work?

        AutoZone carries caliper paint that's good for about 900 deg. and it's under $10 a can.

          Big Wheel Rossi, or Checker auto parts (What ever it is called now adays) also carries it pretty cheap. I got a can for like 7 or 8 bucks a while back.

          And yes, it was a rattle can!
