Got a set of cobra calipers. I want to rebuild them and polish them. Any write ups on either?
just finished polishing my cobra intake. You just have to rub it a lot(like ALOT a lot)....
Best thread I can remember about this
The polishing part is part way through but this guy has alot of great info on his channel.
Best advice is don't do it lol. You'll have to spend a solid weekend on them and that's using power tools to knock the roughness off first. Then they'll oxidize and look hazy after a month since your car sits outside.
I agree with this 100%
I did the upper part of my old bikes frame it was a PITA, took forever and it was constant maintinance I should have powder coated it black. Just know what your getting into
I smoothed mine out for powder and considered just polishing them out but also decided I didn't want the maint on them. Hell I am sending that upper out for ceramic coating partially for that reason but I am not going to say don't do it.
Why not polish then clear powdercoat?
Or you can paint them silver and not worry about much maintenance either. Polished brakes are cool but on a daily I imagine it's going to be the opposite of cool.
Yeah I'm over it already haha. I found a color I like
The polishing part isnt hard honestly. Its keep them looking good afterwards which is a pain. I polished my alternator and valve cover, was so hard to keep them looking nice. No longer have the alternator and I ended up clear coating the valve covers. Even with the clear coat they don't look amazing, get weird colors that develop under and in coating eventually.
Please don't paint them red or yellow...
I bet he does blue
Calipers should never be any color other than black or silver IMO, unless you have crazy big brakes that you want attention drawn to.
Couldnt agree more
Not gonna be red or yellow.
