Brake Caliper Painting
Hand Painting (mobile): Two calipers/drums from £50, four calipers/drums from £85 - extra large/intricate calipers, those with flaking paint etc may incur extra charge; please enquire.
Airbrush Painting (bring it to me indoors overnight): £POA
Hand Painting by brush: One wheel removed at a time to sand, degrease and apply by hand/brush a hardened one stage paint. To be carried out within half a day on a mobile basis on your drive/at your location for the vehicle to sit in place for the paint to dry before being driven. Calipers that feature excessive rust, more than one piston (XL size), flaking paint etc. will cost more. Standard non-metallic colours only with this level of service.
Airbrush Premium Service: To remove all wheels and place on axle stands. Calipers to be sanded/keyed by machine to remove surface corrosion and key for primer. Areas that are not to be painted masked off with foil tape and masking paper. Calipers primed with zinc rich corrosion inhibitor primer. Hardened colour coat of customer's request applied via airbrush before a final layer of hardened clear coat. Must be brought to me and kept overnight unless the customer has suitable indoor facility. A wide range of colours and effects available.
Please note that both the hand brush paint and airbrush premium services do not entail any dismantling of the calipers or brakes. This is an "in-situ" service to save the customer time and money against going to a caliper refurbishment centre whereby the calipers would otherwise be removed from the car, fully stripped down and sandblasted before paint; usually costing in excess of the high end of three or otherwise four figures pound sterling. This particular level of service offered by Detailed By Andrew is to offer a cosmetic improvement suitably priced well below an otherwise full caliper refurbishment elsewhere whilst minimising vehicle downtime.
Disc/hub centres are not painted as part of this service, and I always advise to replace corroded discs with new ones that are coated by the manufacturer.
