Today's project

Today was a detailing day for the next upcoming truck show. I could always see the rotors starting to show rust in the areas that the stock rims touch but my American Racing rims do not. So it was a strip the wheels off and paint the rotors up in black and while I was there I figured I'd remove the calipers and give them a but more of a touch up in the red that I have used. While I was on the front I found the spindles to have plenty of rust covering the entire part. So I stripped them down and sprayed them as well.

Bah don't need those. They only slow me down and I got the truck to go fast.

The red on the calipers is a dupli-color brush on caliper paint, it cures up fast and almost feels like plasti-dip, the black i used on the rotors you cant see is the same only in spray, the spindle I just used a rattle can of gloss rust paint, after i stripped everything off the spindles, backing plate, hoses bearings, Only thing I didn't do was split the ball joints and tie rods as I don't have a splitter, so I just taped stuff up and grabbed some cardboard to back it up and went crazy inside the wheel-well.

Not yet. Had to wait for paint to dry completely so I could take it for a drive to get the paint off braking surface and now I have to clean paint flakes off the wheels. But it does look better. I'll get them washed up tonight when I get home.
