    What’s New: Wheel Alignment – Wheel balance – Caliper painted

    Been a while since my last post… So howdy !! Have been planning to paint the calipers (Obvious DIY), but unfortunately the DIY plan was dropped reason being:

    1. Though I searched online for help & check with many paint dealer – couldn’t find any paint that will withstand the heat
    2. Never tried separating the caliper – taking chances
    3. Weather to spray paint or brush paint – Spray is always recommended
    4. Thought of masking & paint – Still what if the paint flows through the vents

    So, overall more Con’s over Pro’s & decided to get it done from professional. So checked with my friend who owns Bosch Authorized Service Center. Bingo & below just happened. Total time taken for all the work listed above was 5-6 hours. The paint used is good & doesn’t peel off due to overheating of caliper. I never thought Yellow on Silver alloy looks class (Personal option) over a RED body !!

    Hi Nishanth....

    Beg to differ from you on clipper painting. Yellow looks odd man out on red punto. Red would be the nice option.

    I am sorry if i hurt your emotions.

    Thanks for your prompt opinion Himanshu, Yes it look odd ::D may be because the alloys are still silver & not black. But when the wheels spin the option may change !! gives another look. (Again my opinion) :)Naa com'on bud since i have got this done because i wanted yellow not red there ain't any space for getting emotionally hurt hehehe ... Thx !!

    PS: if we cant take other fiatian's opinion ... then we must not be posting anything here :) right ... cheers !!
