Anyone find the correct hi-temp paint for this application? I managed to keep the visible part of the Brembos pristine but chipped a bunch of places during the pad change. Seems like the paint is quite fragile.

Thanks,

Jim

Hi-Temp paint would be nice, but any automotive two stage that matches will work fine. Automotive paint can withstand the temperatures these normally get to.

I called Brembo in Cali. They only sell the upgraded kits, but the rep said that that RS blue is proprietary and he didn't see it listed in their system for a repair paint. We mayhave to use the NB touch up paint (first coat only, no sparkles) and then coat with a high temp clear coat.

The paint code for the calipers is pantone 293C. I painted my RSB to match the calipers. As you can see in the picture below, it's a very good match.

Try visiting your local strip club.

I'm more than sure that our color matches some popular finger nail polish colors.

Ok I feel bad for inflicting our liquid lunch fueled snark on y'alls.

Sorry!

I chipped the caliper everywhere except around those pins! Lucky they aren't visible with the wheels on :|

Thanks for the update. I just put one of these in my shopping cart at Amazon.

Agreed. When I go on the link it looks almost performance blue. But his bar matches quite well.

Even from the image I can see its a very different colour. Close enough for something mounted under the car if your into that sort of thing but no good for a direct paint on paint match.

Just noticed I gouged the paint a little on the inside of my front passenger caliper. Fortunately, you can't see any imperfections with the wheel on, but it's one of those things that bugs me because I know it's there. Plus, is rust something to worry about if I leave it unpainted? I'm wondering if I should try that Pantone 293C paint. Doesn't need to match perfectly since you can't even see it.

the NB touch up paint from ford matched the caliper perfectly for me when the dealership nicked a corner of my caliper. Can't even tell where the touch up now.

Nice. So is it one of those "multi-stage" touch ups where you apply the paint and then the clear coat on top of it? I'm assuming I'd have to get this through the dealer?

Yep. I did not apply the clear coat though.

Look great to me.

You can get it from the dealer or amazon.
