The guy I bought my Bullitt from had the calipers painted to match the wheel color. I want to change them back to red with the white pony. Although I own a powder coating facility I dont really want to completely dismantle the caliper remove the pistons blast off the paint protect the bores etc. I had heard somewhere that there is a paint for these calipers. Anyone know of this or any other ideas.

Thanks

Let me know what you find out. I live in Aurora Illinois and my rear calipers could use a power coat. What would you charge?
Thank You...............

I have heard that this is Cardinal red I could not find this here in the UK, It looks to have been deleted.
I took one new front caliper and one new back caliper to my local auto store to match
the best I could as even front to rear are not the same.

This is the result I got. .

PS This is Honda Rio Red

I used duplicolor's red.(don't know if it has an exact name) It matched perfectly and has held up very well for 2 years. I originally bought a "Ford red" paint but it had too much orange in it. Strange.

Depending on the condition of your old ones if you have the money you could buy new ones, ford racing has them and sell the gray ones on ebay. Or just tape and paint cardinal red.

I also used the dupli color caliper paint. I made the mistake of using regular spray paint on one of my other vehicles...i had pink calipers about a week later.

Repainting Red Calipers

Duplicolor Cardinal Red appears to be an exact match. It comes in a boxed kit.
My fronts are like new, but the red factory powder coat was flaking off the rears.

The kit contained a clear aluminum primer, a can of liquid paint, brush, stir stick.
The paint has a leveling additive, so no matter how you apply the paint it dries smooth.

I used a norton paint stripper on a drill (like a hard black sponge on a drill mandrel).
It strips off the old powder coat and polishes the aluminum really good.

The Duplicolor is good.

Mine are the same, fronts like new, backs starting to flake, it can't be touched up then?
