Caliper Paint Processes

The best quality paint jobs

1. Caliper removal

Caliper paint tends to proceed without removal from the wheels in low-quality shops but at CBS, all parts removed from the vehicle to get the perfect finishing. The brake caliper is a vital part of driving safely, so our experienced mechanics ensure removing as well as refitting processes.

2. Caliper cleaning

Oil stains, brake dust, and other contaminations are removed by our special cleaning liquid until the caliper is perfectly cleaned so that the painted colour would not be easily removed. The finishing look is sleek and brand new again.

3. Brushing, Sanding

Brushing and sanding are crucial to remove brake dust including stuck material effectively. These processes ensure calliper smooth and clean, dry and free from dust.

4. Masking & Rough Coating

Masking a caliper properly times a lot of time, but if not masked correctly, many problems could be caused because of overspray and paint in the jambs. By applying primer, the deep scratches that could not be removed by sanding can be sealed and smoothed, and the durability will be better.

5. Paint mixing & applying colour

Our professional car painters mix your ideal colour. Firstly they paint a base colour to make the main colour more vibrant. The primary paint is applied in a dark room with light to make sure if there are unpainted areas that are left.

6. Finish coating

Calipers will shine by applying a clear top-coat like the car body. If you would like an original logo design on the caliper, we will create a heat-resistant logo that suits you.

7. Polishing, Final check

We will do the final polishing work with last detail check. The painted caliper will become brighter by polishing than the original colour.

8.Refit

As well as the first removal process, the painted calipers will be refitted by our experienced technicians. At the same time, we will do the brake fluid flush to the bleeding brake system, the computer scanning, and the test driving.
