Thanks! VHT engine enamel spray paint. Grey primer, color, and around 4 coats of clear. All rattle cans. They are not perfect by any means lol. Just good enough 20 feet away :rofl::rofl: I don’t know if this color will look good with my 4runners dark metallic green. Also baked at 200 for 1 hour to cure.

They have boring caliper pain colors so I figure I’d try engine paint. Some reviews say it works! I would not paint my miatas calipers with engine paint, would cook it right off.

I will be starting the rear swap during next week. I still need pads and rotors for the front swap.

While me Titans up on the ramps and the front skid plate is off, I’m mopping up under the engine bay, lubing the strut upper/lower bolt mounts for swapping the coil-struts when they come next week, checked the bolt torque on the front drive shaft hubs, replaced both drive shafts and Drivers side wheel bearings ~5 years ago…still have a spare bearing for the passenger side, replaced from differential about 15 years ago…when Nissan came out with the “improved” one…, checked the u-joints…they were a PITA to change…more Nissan crappy design drive shafts…:rage:

All engine bay work is done on a step ladder…even when off the ramps…:joy::joy::joy:

Don’t ask how I buckled the front bumper…that’s another story! :joy::joy::joy:

Be very careful with that ladder. I had exact one and used it for probably 9 10 years and allways told people how great it was because of multi functional. Heavy but worked great until the day it didnt. Those pegs you pull out to raise and lower leg height are made of freakin pot metal i had mine strecthed out and was up about 10 12 feet when one of those pins sheard off and dropped me bad. I couldnt walk for allmost 2 weeks and dr said he didnt know how the hell neither leg was brokin. Just thought id share brother. I do still use the inner part just as a folding short step ladder but ill never get on one of those type ladders again with those pins only thing holding together.
