But do you open the calipers and paint them individually or do you make it impossible to open them in the future as they are painted together.............. :doh:
........ no comment eh?

err... why???

If I paint a caliper, it has just a thin coating of colour to appear as original without filling in the identifaction marks. It can still be disassembled easily if needed.

It's not like the heavy coating of paint modern calipers have.

And, Pless. They ARE Gold when new.... a satin dull colour. Not shiny.

And they're NOT silver, as some claim. Porsche had a silver ate caliper that looks almost identical and the seal kits can be used, but it is in fact aluminium on a Porsche.

Maybe be a bit lighter on the spray as the ones I tried to help get open was not coming apart too easy.

you are totally 100% wrong.

they are like an alloy colour with a SLIGHT tinge of gold...but without a hard look, they just look silver.

the end.

WRONG

They go more and more silvery with heat and aging, until they then rust.

new ones, bought in a box from the factory and never heat cycled, are GOLD.

Nope.

Hard to find pics, but here's superformance. THis is gold zinc pass... not CAD. Too shiny, but as original as you can get.

If I could be bothered, I'd scan and post a page from a book I have somehwere, that shows cars on the production line with the wheels off.

GOLD, but not shiny, just satin CAD plate.
