NO sanding required. The caliper kit comes with a can of brake cleaner, which is all you need to clean off the calipers before painting. ;-)

The time consuming part is masking the caliper w/ the tape...

Good luck!

do they have a white paint or a black paint? id want white but i kno that itll be black by the end of the week haha

I have white - used the G2 and it came out great. As far as getting dirty they really aren't bad. I've made a couple of long trips already, and done a lot of passes at the track and they stay pretty clean looking. Ialso drive my car almostevery day, and have a 100 mile round trip commute. The G2 washes up well also. I considered black, but figured with the black car andblack bullitts the black calipers would end up just black blobs and not an accent - besides my car has a white and black thing going with the stripes.

Duplicolor doesn't make a white caliper paint kit.

looks great. im thinking about heading that route. i think itll look good with the white stipes on my car. thanks a lot
