Powder coating would have been a better idea for long term durability.

And about 10 time more expensive.
And not everyone has a podwer coater.
And not everyone has two vehicles to be without the stang
for a few days while the rims are at the powder coaters.
I think for the cost involved, the time spent and the right
to say "I did it myself", he did a Kudos Bang-Up job.
And knows how to fix them if the paint is not as durable
as powdercoating. Ovenbaking does a darn good job at
toughening paint and getting ti to stick to things....

Looks good.
Excellent job.

I did the same thing and HATED that paint. I think the caliper paint would of worked much better ... especially with the nicer tip and no need for a clearcoat, probably.

I wouldn't be painting if it's raining personally, too much moisture in the air. I'd sand them with up to 320 grit, two coats of primer, than 2-3 coats of the caliper paint and it'd probably come out damn good.
