I can't help you with pics of the colors you want, but I can tell you that I recommend VHT Caliper paint. It comes in a standard spray can. Blazing Blue (aka Bright Blue) is a very goo match for a SBM. Check mine out: Rob's Brake Calipers.
It was sprayed on with the VHT brake caliper paint, but the brakes were entirely disassembled before painting. My calipers were stained badly by some cleaning chemical that the dealer used during pre-delivery prep, so they had agreed to either replace them or paint them for me. I was going to paint them myself, so that was an offer I couldn't refuse. They pulled everything apart, used several coats of primer, paint, and clearcoat, then reassembled everything and bled the brakes. Looks sweet and has held up pretty well considering it survived a Minnesota winter already.Originally posted by DYSFUNCTIONAL:
nice MNspectrablueIS... was that done sprayed on without removing the calipers? is it easy enough to paint it on with a brush like Zor Prime?
If you're talking about the VHT Blazing Blue, no it isn't darker. It is actually slightly lighter in color than SBM. I've used my factory SBM touch up paint on a spot that I nicked when mounting my winter wheels and it (SBM) is darker than the caliper paint. To answer IS300GTE's question, I don't know how it compares to Intense Blue Pearl. I've never seen that color in person.Originally posted by DYSFUNCTIONAL:
