E36General discussion and technical help for (E36) 1992-1999 3 series cars. 318, 323, 325, 328.
The issue really isnt that they get too hot... its that if you paint them red and have open wheels it looks like shit when it starts to chip.. and it going to. Another alternative i saw was taking a metal/steel wool type brush for the end of an elecric drill and using paint thinner and stripping them down and polishing them... sounds gay but it actuallly looks sexxy.

aLRIGHT. so, i finally decided i wanted to do this. i knew that taking the caliper off would require me to mess w/ the brakepads/bleeding the brakes. ect. so i didnt do that. as u can see in the pics, i taped off the rotors/and the pads, then wrapped a plastic bag around it. but before that, i took steel wool and rubbed it on the caliper for a really long time to make sure all of the brake dust came off. that is pretty much the deal. i put 2-3 coats of the VHT red spray paint on and it stuck pretty well. after a few more coats it looked awesome. i dont have any pics of the car totally done, but i can go take some. i look at this DIY as a quick and fairly easy way to paint them. if you have any ?'s or more pic requests, let me know. see ya guys. and JR silver would be okay, but i thought the point of painting them was to make them stand out... just my opinion though. cya later. the red turned out very well w/ the black (sorry i uploaded them wrong )
Umnitza now provides a mechanic to install all parts ordered right in the box! It's their new "Total customer service program" that will eliminate all the haters and keep incompetents from breaking **** and blaming the vendor! When you are all set simply call INS and they will pick him up free of charge.
