    I've seen people use the paint on caliper kits and have much success with them. So when deciding how I wanted to paint my calipers, the brush on kits seemed very easy and not as messy (overspray, massive amounts of masking, etc.) so my question is, what are the G2 paint kits like? I found a kit...

    Hey everyone I wanted to get some feedback on some aesthetic detailing I've been mulling over for a while now. Last year I bought a 2012 Mazda 3 skactiv, It's definitely time to start personalizing this car. I've looked high and low for weeks now but I have some questions hopefully I can get...

    I'm about to buy some G2 caliper paint off their own website. I want the red but on the site it looks more like a maroon so I just wanted to double check to make sure they didn't change it. Since I know a lot of y'all use it, what color is the red? Anyone got pics straight up of their calipers...

    Hey, Just for ships and giggles I have been browsing around trying to find a nice brake swap for my 2012 iTouring sedan. I haven't been able to find much to be honest. This is the best source of info I have found...

    Hey everyone, I'm lookin' to paint my calipers, because of the research I've done, the majority of the feedback says to go with paint and not caliper covers. Just wondering if anyone has any input on best brands of paint or best cleaning/paint kit. Also, I might put mazda caliper decals, is it...

    So I have painted my calipers last night and they came out pretty damn good. The paint is self leveling. I used a sponge and a tiny brush (for the tight spots) and it worked great. I noticed the paint in the can has not hardened yet so I might go check the calipers and see if I missed any...

    I have Matt Gunmetal wheels coming and I'm going to repaint my calipers with G2. What color calipers would look good? Mazda decals from http://sechemedia.ca/shop/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&page=shop.browse&category_id=3&Itemid=2&vmcchk=1&Itemid=2 will contrast the caliper color. All...

    Hello Everyone, I just decided to post this in case anybody finds this useful. First off I just got my G2 Caliper Paint about 2 days ago and I put it on all the calipers today. It was pretty painless to apply, but you have to watch out for the brush they supply. It's pretty cheap and it will...

    I just received G2 Red Brake Caliper paint and I will be getting my brakes painted soon. I'm also gonna be putting mazdaspeed decals on the calipers after getting it painted. I was just wondering if I need to put layers of clear coat after I put decals, or is it going to be fine without clear...

    I will be getting Black Enkei PF01 18x8 +45offset on my 2010 Celestial Blue Mazdaspeed 3 next week. I would like to paint my brake calipers and I'm not sure which color I should go with. I was thinking red G2 brake caliper paint. I think blue, black, and gold would look good as well. Let me know...

    So i purchased the G2 red caliper paint set, but in the instructions it says after you coat them twice you need to wait a bit before mounting tires then 24 hours before use. Are the 24 hours mandatory? I dont think I have 24 hours that i can spare not to use the car. I was going to do it on a...

    I just ordered some mazda 3 white decals and some black g2 caliper paint and hopefully will have my car looking great next weekend. My only question is i see member stating that they put a clear coat over the decals to keep them sticking and protected. What clear did you use? I'd rather not use...
