Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.Rated 1 out of 5 by IrishBen Suggestion Dear Halfords, Recently bought this but i returned it to your store and got the red one instead. I want to take this time to make a suggestion to you. You guys need to provide a colour sample of whats in the pot! even on the outside, calling it blue is wildly inaccurate, its a light blue at best! had i been able to see an example of it (not with any fancyness, litterally just get a small sheet of metal and get someone instore to open a pot of it and paint it then let it dry, no fancy topcoat! or anything). With scratch pens you guys sell, theres a paint code so you know what you're getting when you buy it, with these pots theres nothing except a generic colour title (ie blue/red) theres 40 shades of each guys. you need to give ppl a little help here.. 30 November 2016Rated 3 out of 5 by richie1080 Looks great, but melts in brake fluid :? Bough this paint to refinish my bike calipers, it applys nicely and seems to set to a nice glossy finish, really smooth. However it never really seems to dry, even after leaving for a week, and once it comes into contact with even a drop of brake fluid seems revert to tacky paint. \shame as when freshly painted they looked great but now i have to start again and try something different :( 26 July 2015Rated 5 out of 5 by JamieF42 Looks great Went on smoothly on my calipers. Makes my big brakes stand out more :) 02 July 2014Rated 5 out of 5 by roddenshaw Just finished... I just finished painting my brake calipers, and they look great. The blue on the tin is not the same as the paint inside. Once dried the paint is exactly the same shade of blue as in the BMW badge. I will update this with a negative review should the paint not last well, but I'm anticipating good things. 29 April 2014Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyH38 Does what it says on the tin So far so good we shall have to see if it lasts, but still plenty left in the tin to go over them again and again. 28 July 2013Rated 5 out of 5 by ezee86 Excellent product I purchased this Caliper paint for my Arden Blue VXR as a cheaper option to buying Vauxhalls car specific paint, as it is in a spray tin & I wanted to paint it on with a brush. It seemed from the reviews I had read that people were put off by the shade of light blue when they opened the tin. !you need to stir/mix the paint when opened, and you will see it turns a dark shade of blue! This paint is really good quality, once its dried and hardened proper after, it dries a to a sporty shade of blue (almost identical to standard VXR calipers) which is why I bought it. It goes on smoothly with a descent brush & doesnt drip if you applycorrectly (dont just slap it on). i used this on my calipers and on my drums & still have a tin near enough left after 2 good coats on each caliper & drum. p.s, use a wire brush to get rid of any rust or flaked paint before applying. Tip (when youve applied the 1st coat, hold a hairdryer a moderate distance away until it sets sticky, just before totally dry... and then add a 2nd coat & use the hairdryer again for a couple of mins) it leaves a very smoothe finish. 11 April 2013Rated 5 out of 5 by beancole Good product Good product the blue is really clear it dries a little darker than on the tin but not too much. It gives a good look to old calipers. If however your calipers are really rusty like mine were then just take a cordless drill and a wire brush attachment. I got one again from halfords for a few pounds. The paint goes on thick and and isn't runny. It goes on fine with a brush just give a second coat after around 30-40 mins when the paint is nice and sticky. I was able to put wheels back on within an hour without worrying about dripping on my alloys. do it on a night and it is fine and dried hard by morning. 21 May 20121-7 of 7
