Brake Caliper Covers????
« on: July 12, 2018, 11:26:38 am »
Hi all,

I have been thinking of paining my calipers, but noticed that you can get covers instead. 

Have any of you guys used covers instead of painting?  If so, how have you got on with them?  any issues with over heating or falling off? 

Cheers

Watching, but to be honest, I've never heard of such a thing  ???
Look at life through the windscreen, not the rearview mirror.

Yes they exist, show off, etc, but most of the 6 owners have a headache with seized callipers. Priorities kind of business. You can try them. I think you can boil the brakes so easily without the covers that the covers will not make it any worse.

Ok.  Think I'll leave it.  I'll just paint them.  Saw them online and it seems like a quick fix, but think painting them would be the better option. 

Cheers All.
