how to Remove the brembo calipers

I was just wondering if there is a thread out there or if someone knows how to remove the Brembo calipers so I can paint them.

Remove wheel. 2 bolts on spindle. 1 bolt for fluid line. Remember fluid is in line and the caliper.

And brake fluid will eat paint

Taking the caliper off requires bleeding the brake lines?

If you are just painting them, then leaving them on the car would likely be the easiest option.

Best regards,

I have heard good things about the G2 kits. They are a brush on I believe. Never used them myself though.

Best regards,

Only if you disconnect the brake lines. You could unbolt them and set them on top of the rotor and paint them that way. Do not use spray paint unless you completely remove them from the vehicle. Overspray is a
B&%#H to remove from the vehicle. It gets into places you don't know exist.

For those of you who have used the G2 kit, does anyone know how their orange paint kit matches up to the oem inferno orange? Also, will one kit be enough to cover all 4 Brembo calipers on my SS? Any good ideas for keeping the OEM "Chevrolet Brembo" markings on the calipers or will I need to find a stencil to go back over them?

Well if you know what you are doing,leaving the calipers on isnt a problem. I left all of mine on and just taped everything off, painting the calipers is something that shouldnt be rushed.

You will need to buy brembo decals if you refinish your calipers, no way around it

This is 9 months after doing mine, still looks like I just did them. I used Krylon "red pepper" paint and VHT high temp engine enamel clearcoat.

I have to do mine during this off season. I have G2 paint in gloss black and picked up some Brembo decals to put back on the calipers when done.
G2 has paint to match your OEM color. It cost a little more but they have it available. Go to their site and see the options, otherwise you can get their primary colors.
