Yellow brakes, YEAH BABY!!

Here's a pic of Zens brakes drying.



The yellow looks awsome in the sun, like my old yellow 911. I can say that painting calipers with a brush sucks. Next time, I'll find something to spray on.

They need to dry a few days, then I'll put them in the oven on low for a few hours to make sure they are cured.

Soon as I finish the spacers for the spindles, Zens suspension is ready.

The old bushing needs to come out and be replaced with the bug pack one, different size. Should be in your stack of goodies you got at Taccoa. Should be red urethane ones.

I used a G2 kit from these guys:

http://wheelskin.com/Merchant2/merch...+CALIPER+PAINT

$42 shipped was the best price I could find on the web.

Didn't have to use a base coat, just two coats of this stuff. It's a pretty thick, two part paint. I'll have to shoot another shot out in the sun, it's even brighter then.
