Detailed Instructions and Tips.
Step 1:Remove all four wheels from vehicle. Calipers don’t need to be removed. Don’t remove brake line.
Step 2:Clean surfaces to be painted with POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser. Spray on the cleaner and brush the dirt, grease and grime with a small scrub brush or toothbrush. Wear protective gloves and glasses when cleaning your calipers. Read directions on POR-15 Cleaner Degreaser container before using.
Step 3:Rinse cleaned caliper thoroughly with water and dry with clean towel. Now apply POR-15 Metal Prep and keep surface wet for 20 minutes and then wash off POR-15 Metal Prep with water and dry thoroughly.
Step 4:Mask off the areas not to be painted. Tape off the brake bleeder screw, brake lines, and caliper piston boots and anything else you don’t want painted.
Step 5:Open the small can of POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating and stir, making sure the contents are thoroughly mixed. Using a foam brush (included in your kit) paint the caliper evenly, making sure the coating is evenly applied but not to the point where the paint runs. Because this is a rust preventive coating you want to be sure you don’t miss any spots which could rust later if not covered.
Step 6:When the POR-15 Rust Preventive Coating is just dry to the touch, with slight finger-drag remaining, normally in the 2-5 hour range, it’s ready for the POR-15 Caliper Paint to be applied. Open the can of POR-15 Caliper Paint, stir thoroughly, and apply the first coat in thin but even strokes. When the first coat is dry (3 -4 hours), apply a second coat to achieve a beautiful ceramic-like finish.
