Damaged Caliper Surface Finish

Oh well live and learn!!! Just like when I thought this would be a good idea I missed the Warning in the product - All Wheel & Tire Cleaning - This was the result after I washed the the wheel. Some of the foam sprayed towards the caliper and eat up the finish of the surface.

My piece of art!!


Any ideas on how to revert the damage?

Remove the wheel, use caliper cleaner and then caliper paint. problem solved.

Thanks Chris. Your suggestion is a thought, I saw another post how to paint the calipers, and may consider it; I will wait a week and see if the calipers surface return to normal, maybe is just residual cleaner.

I should have read the fine print!!

This is the product -

Just camera angle but your spokes look black. That would be a cool design,

It could be. I mean, I can't really see that cleaner taking off anything from the caliper which is already bare to begin with. I've used the same wheel cleaner before with no problems. In fact, I painted my calipers and have used that stuff since then with no problems.
Any auto parts store should sell the cleaner and paint. They come in spray bottles. Very easy to use and honestly, it gives the calipers a much cleaner look. I would say to go ahead and paint them anyway.
