Brake preparation before painting - a fundamental detail
Before painting your car's brake calipers, it's crucial that you prepare the surface in advance. This involves using brake cleaners and a wire brush to remove any dirt, areas of corrosion or any other contaminants.
After completing this process, you can start painting the bombitos by applying the paint in several layers for a smoother and more durable finish.
It is also very important to respect the curing time of the paint. The drying time, both between layers and after the last layer for final curing, depends on the brand and is always indicated in the application manual. The ideal will always be to leave it to dry overnight and just get back in the car the next day.
