Halfords Brake Caliper Paint - Blue 250ml is rated out of 5 by 9.Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from A darker shade of blue when dry. I bought it for my BMW seeing reviews as to it being similar to the BMW emblem blue, and that's true only to some extend- it looks very similar to that blue when it is applied, but it gets a bit darker than the BMW emblem blue once the paint dries. I have a black car, and I hoped the calipers would stand out in blue but it is hard to notice unless you are looking for it. I got the red the next day for a friend of mine for his Nissan Qashqai, and you can notice the red from far away. The red color catches your eye- but then the fact that his calipers were bigger and his car had a 5 spoke wheel as to mine being a 7 spoke one may all have contributed to his being more visible. The paint was of good quality and I felt it was worth the money. I am not as happy as I hoped with mine not because of any issues with the paint, but of my choice of colour. The red would have been more visible for my black car, and I am thinking of going for it.Date published: 2018-05-24Rated 5 out of 5 by mia2016 from A cheap and easy way to make a huge difference. I got the brush on paint rather than a spray. There is no need to mask off as there would be with a spray can so it does make it easier. The colour i choose was 'blue' and i agree with previous comments about there needing to be a colour sample on the tin, rather than just calling it blue. As it turned out it was spot on for me as it matches the blue on my BMW wheel centre caps, quite a light and bright blue. I used a cheap square edged paint brush about 10 mm wide at the tip, this was just the job enabling good coverage on larger areas of the caliper but small enough for finer detail work. Read the instructions! Clean the calipers properly, and degrease (brake cleaner and a wire brush) i also used wire wool to finish the prep. ( as with everything in life preparation is the key.) H +S warning, as well as the jack get some stands under the car, please don't take shortcuts here! Stir the paint well. Apply using strokes in ONE direction and do not be tempted to keep brushing over and over because this will cause a stringy finish as it does start to go off fairly soon. I put on quite a thick first coat, normal paint would have run but this did not. One coat is not enough, I suggest leaving it one hour (the max according to the tin) then overpainting. This did the job for me and the finish is superb. Not sure what the brush cleaning solvent should be, there is no information on the tin. I used white spirits and it seems to have worked in cleaning the brush. If you buy a cheap set of small paint brushes from B and Q you could use and throw away. One small tin is plenty for all for calipers.Date published: 2018-04-06Rated 1 out of 5 by IrishBen from 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..Date published: 2016-11-30Rated 3 out of 5 by richie1080 from 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 :(Date published: 2015-07-26Rated 5 out of 5 by JamieF42 from Looks great Went on smoothly on my calipers. Makes my big brakes stand out more :)Date published: 2014-07-02Rated 5 out of 5 by roddenshaw from 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.Date published: 2014-04-29Rated 5 out of 5 by TonyH38 from 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.Date published: 2013-07-28Rated 5 out of 5 by ezee86 from 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.Date published: 2013-04-11
