Does anyone remember how much horsepower red caliper paint adds? I want to say +20 bhp ("brake horse power" ), but I'm not sure. I do know that red adds the most.

I did high temp and a clear coat to try and make it last long since this is the second time I have painted them, I also used some rust reformer.

I am pretty tempted to check these out http://dallas.craigslist.org/ftw/pts/3876756584.html

I spoke with the guys at roadmaster, there are different kits and the two wheel drive east fit is different from what they show on that video. I donno why they dont update these videos. I ordered it so ill let you know in about a week! PICS

recently was driving it and the crossmember holding my 4link broke and my driveshaft went down and pulled itself out of the transmission and trans fluid was everywhere. someone told me that it was the hanger bearing. is this true?

"Hey good-lookin'! Whatcha got cookin'?"

I sure hope this VHT high-temp paint lasts longer than the last time I painted my drums. Seems like Mr. Rusty Jones is not detered by most paints.



My BHLM is taking longer than I'd like. I started with Rust-Oleum satin black paint for plastic and it was too shiny for me. Then I used Rust-Oleum matte black automotive paint (pictured), but compared to the black plastic on the grill of the truck, it looks dark green Blech. So, another trip to the paint store tomorrow I guess.

I used the Dupli-Color caliper kit from a local parts store for about $20. Red was the only color I could find. It is a brush on kit that includes a can of cleaner, tape, a brush, and the paint. By brushing on the paint, I didn't have to worry about bleeding my brakes or have to deal with red colored over-spray getting on everything.

There's enough paint to do several cars worth of calipers. It's pretty much a one day job as the paint dries relatively fast.

There are 4 main bolts on the back of the calipers: 2 that hold the caliper together and 2 that hold the caliper on the spindle. I removed them all and got the rotor out of the way while I was painting. The rotor came off really easily since the truck is new.

I have new rotors on order that have a black protective coating so I don't end-up with rust-balls showing through my new wheels (at least for a little while). I was just going to paint the rotors (the non-contact area, obviously), but since I couldn't find black caliper paint and it would've been nearly impossible to get paint in the vented area of the rotor, I just decided to get new ones ($40/each).

I don't have them yet, but I ordered these Raybestos rotors 'cause Amazon only had 1 of the Centric rotors in stock. had on the Centric rotors on my last truck and was very happy with them, especially considering the price. I had Power-Slot rotors prior to the Centrics and they got bent after about a year (maybe I splashed them with a puddle or something.) I decided I'm not going to spend a lot on rotors any more because there's no guarantee they'll last and I didn't see any real benefit to paying more.



Note the hub and vented area of the rotor are painted black on this Centric rotor. The only part that'll rust is the brake pad surface.

Cameras, especially cheap ones in most phones, will need a lot of light to produce remotely decent pictures. Don't even bother taking night shots with a cheap phone camera. Also avoid taking pictures directly into the sign like you did the in the first set of pictures... and get your truck out of the shadow of the other truck. Put your truck in direct sunlight with the sun behind you so there aren't a lot of shadows on your truck. That's the best you can hope for
