Brake caliper paint

I'd like to respray my calipers. I bought the car a few years back now with yellow calipers a la ceramic - which I thought it was a nice touch - but they need to go back to original red
Just had some work done: new discs and pads all round and a couple of the bleed nipples were seized/corroded on and were replaced (with stainless steel ones). As such, they need a touch up and I thought I'd take the opportunity to go back to OEM
Would anyone recommend which rattle can red is the best/correct one?

TIA

I use my Guards Red touch up paint to do chips in the calipers and it's a perfect match.
 
I can't comment on the oem colour match but the Auto K paint is good :thumb:
 
I used Guards Red on mine, It's not the colour Porsche use but its close enough.... :thumb:

 
I used the por-15 brush on caliper paint on my old range rover 2 coats and the finish was excellent sorry no pics cobras ones look pretty good with whatever he used👍

If memory serves there was a guy on this forum that sold the PORSCHE logos for callipers.
 
BUMP....

Sorry guys - brush on or rattle can paint???
 
Not sure one is any better than the other bit more masking up if your spraying I am away to do the cayenne and will. Be using the por-15 brush on.

Either is fine; I've always had good results with brushing and have more confidence the paint has thoroughly engaged with the surface.
You're going to have to remove and strip the calipers to clean, prep and mask them though, let alone paint them. Look at the photos above. You can't get results like that doing it in situ.

I have got mine from Uber9 / brakecaliperdecals.co.uk. They conveniently supply you with 3 to do a pair of caliper. Built in option for messing one up!

I also applied some high temp clear coat over the top, just to avoid the decals becoming easily damaged :thumb:
