    what does the kit consist of ? wonder if I could just buy the stuff at wal-mart cheaper ?

    If you dont go with caliper paint or high temp paint it will most likely flake off. Cheaper is not always better as I have learned the hard way a time or two.

    It consists of a brush on paint, caliper cleaner, a brush, a paddle to stir with and some masking tape. I thin it runs around $16 and its a high temp paint.

    Even better on the car.
    I will get pics once I get the brakes bled and I have the TTII's on it.
    Can't see the caliper through the ProStars.

    That pic is of them sanded a little and cleaned with 99% alcohol.
    I used a paint stripper to get the old paint off.
