    ok well as you can see in my sig pic, i took the time to paint my front calipers fire truck red :D. quite naturally they get large amounts of brake dust on them and they are pretty easily cleaned with a brush. i was just wondering if maybe some of that $1.99 clear coat in a can at wally world would keep the brake dust off or be easier to clean?

    Personally, I'd change to a better quality pad and just eliminate the dust all together.

    Clear coat will not prevent brake dust build-up but it will help the paint hold up to repeated cleaning and fading.
