[DML] brake caliper painting



Hi group,

My master cylinder needs replacement so I guess it is time to go through the brakes again on my car. I previously installed stainless braided hoses and my rotors and pads have plenty of life left. 

I think this time around with my brakes I am going to go all-out and get the calipers cleaned up really well and painted or plated. However, I don't know much about selecting a good paint or if plating is better. I knew Hervey sells zinc-plated calipers. Are they worth the expense? I want something that will hold up in the long run and look "restored". Those zinc calipers sure look nice!

Do you just put a bolt in the bleeder hole and hose hole, then bring them in to a bead-blasting shop and let them go at it? Any special precautions? What is the best route - paint or plating? I don't want to have to mess with these again for a long time.

Andy
