Folia Tec makes a kit. I used the G2 kit from performance products (they are just down the street). Both of these kits are $50.00 and include two part hi-temp enamel paint, a can of brake cleaner, and a brush. You could get all of these things much cheaper somewhere else. The only plus is the included instructions - but I was able to get the same info by doing a search for "painted brake caliper" on yahoo. Also check out the article on It takes all day. Be sure to clean the heck out of your calipers with a wire brush. Put the paint on in coats. Use a smaller brush for the parts closest to the areas you've masked. The tape doesn't stick so well to brake pads, etc... Mix the paint per wheel - not all at once.

Good Luck,

Can you point me to source of paint, instructions, etc? I'd like to try that.
