...with a floor jack and some stands. Jacked it side to side. The paint is supposed to dry 15 mins between coats and 2 hours before putting the wheels back on. Just enough time to REALLY clean and wax your wheels inside and out. You shouldn't drive for 24 hours, though.

I mixed the paint in small dixie cups so I wouldn't waste it. Worked very well. Takes ALL day.

After reading instructions on caliper-painting, I was a little discouraged. I only have a "one corner at a time" jack, so I can't let them dry before putting the wheel back on. Unless I paint each of the four in seperate sittings, and then I'd have to mix the paint, etc. four times! Any suggestions? Is there such a thing as a reasonably-priced lift? I guess I could lift one front corner, put a block under it, then lift the other corner, so that the front end was lifted? Then I could do the same for the rear end. That way at least I'd only have two sittings instead of four.
