Painting Brembo calipers advice needed
I'm planning on giving the braking system on my Brera a thorough going over soon. This will include new disc/pads, braided hoses and overhauling and painting the calipers.
What's got me a little concerned is that the Brembo calipers seem to be made from aluminium, or at least some other non-magnetic metal/alloy, and all the high temperature paints I've seen so far say they aren't suitable for aluminium.
Do people just ignore the not suitable advice, or is there a paint out there I haven't looked at yet?
That's the technical question, now a couple that call for personal tastes so I know there'll be differing views.
My thoughts were to go with red calipers and Brembo stickers rather than the more normal Alfa Romeo ones. I've seen pictures of a few members who've done this, but most stay with the Alfa logos. I wouldn't dream of going down the Brembo route if they weren't genuine calipers, but as they are is there any reason not to do this?
My other plan was to fit clear coated stainless steel lines, but now I've got something else on my mind. I've seen caliper paint that's available in metallic pearl red and I'm toying with the idea of matching this with red tinted clear covers on the lines. Considering that I'll also be coating the wheels with matt black rubber paint while they're off, and as much of the chrome on the car as possible is now coated black, this would be the only colour effectively visible, so I thought it would have a decent visual impact.
What do you think guys?
