This top-of-the-line Volvo BRAKE Caliper Paint System Set from G2™, is the most complete and easy-to-use kit available and includes everything necessary to paint four (4) standard sized brake calipers or two (2) drums in your driveway or professional performance shop.
G2™ has specially contracted chemical engineers to research and develop our two-part paint for the 704 paint code which now offers the highest heat resistance on the DIY aftermarket (up to 980 degrees). Easily applied as a brush-on, the paint adds a great styling touch to any brake caliper ultimately highlighting already stylish show-through rims.Not only is the G2™ system attractive, but it offers great chemical and physical protection to the caliper. Brake fluids and dust, road salt, dirt, even loose gravel can't harm the high-gloss finish of G2's™ Volvo BRAKE Caliper Paint System.
The Volvo G2 BRAKE Caliper Paint System™ has many advantages over spray-type paint because it will not flake, and it dries much harder than any rattle-can product. Our Volvo 704 paint kit is so attractive and reliable that G2™ offers a 100% product performance guarantee.
Since the G2™ Volvo Brake Caliper Paint System Set is available in 11 standard, high-gloss, wear-resistant colors, including red, yellow, blue, silver, black, purple, green, white, gold, orange and pink! There is a G2™ Brake Caliper Paint System Set color for every application and style including the 704 paintcode!
>> Please Note: The Volvo G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set contains approximately 3 1/2 liquid oz. of 704 paint and approximately 1/2 liquid oz. of reactor, yielding 4 liquid oz. total when mixed, which will cover four (4) standard brake calipers or two (2) brake drums. However if you have over-sized calipers on the front of your vehicle and/or if you are planning on painting your brackets, rotor caps etc. you'll probably need two kits.
However the can it comes in is actually an 8 oz. can. Upon receiving a kit for the first time it may appear that your can was short filled because it is not full to the top. This is actually intentional, this way you can add the reactor directly to the can and mix the two thoroughly without having to worry about spills.
Once this is done you can apply the paint as normal by following the steps below.
Scrub the calipers or drum with a Scotch-Brite pad or scrub sponge and a bucket of water to clean as much brake dust, rust and dirt off as possible. Detergent isn't necessary as you're really just trying to remove the loose particles at this point. Allow the surface to air dry then apply the brake cleaner to break up the tougher brake dust and rust. Alternate spraying the caliper or drum and then brushing it with a wire brush. If necessary go back to the bucket of water and scrub pad to get whatever remaining brake dust you can. Allow the surface to air dry again then spray it one more time with the brake cleaner.
The surface should be ready for paint application at this point.
Storing the pre-mixed brake caliper paint and reactor in an air tight container does not retard the hardening process. If you attempt this, rest assured when you come back the next day to paint the other side you will have a very bright, very hard hockey puck.
It's much easier to simply invest in a good set of jack stands (Which will run you approximately $15.00 at any chain automotive parts store), and make sure all of your prep work ie. cleaning the calipers, applying masking tape, etc. is done before mixing the reactor in with the paint.
However being that there is a 4-6 hr. working time with our brake caliper paint once the reactor is added to the paint, this question, like the one above usually arises from those who don't own and or don't want to invest in a good set of jack stands. The logic being, if you mix half of the reactor with half of the brake caliper paint you can jack one side of the car up and do the calipers, allow them to cure, and then repeat the process on the other side with the other half of the reactor and brake caliper paint. Sounds great in theory... However it doesn't work out that well in practice.
As stated earlier, when you receive your G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set, the amounts are pre-measured. So in order to achieve the high-gloss self-leveling finish that you have come to expect from the G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set you would need to split these amounts in half perfectly... This is harder than it sounds. It's definitely not something you can eyeball, it needs to be done by weight, and you'll need a jeweler's scale that's accurate. Otherwise the formula may be skewed and the finish will be adversely affected. So yes... You can mix our brake caliper paint in batches, however it is certainly not recommended. It's much easier to simply invest in a good set of jack stands (Which will run you approximately $15.00 at any chain automotive parts store), and make sure all of your prep work ie. cleaning the calipers, applying masking tape, etc. is done before mixing the reactor in with the paint.
Alternatively, there is more than enough paint in our standard G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set to paint four calipers with some left over. Why not convince a friend to paint their calipers the same color and use their left overs to touch up your own?
Since it is virtually impossible to describe a color (My idea of deep blue may not even be close to your idea of deep blue.), and not all monitors are created equally, please don't ask us if our red is a deep red, or our green is a dark green, or if our yellow is a bright yellow we can't really answer these questions. We offer free color swatches to any who request them, so If you're not sure, by all means request a color swatch and compare it yourself. You can request a free color swatch here. Just let us know which color you're interested in in the comments.
You would need to let us know you are interested in a custom aquamarine color by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You will then be advised on where to send the color sample. Once the sample is received we will have it analyzed and a formula for that color will be developed, as well as a price per kit based on the raw materials needed. Samples will be supplied to you for approval, and if all is well your custom order will go into production once payment is made.
Please do not e-mail us requesting a color match for your 2007 Stormy Blue Mica Mazda 3 Series, as we won't be able to help you. We color match according to the color code only, NOT color names.
Please keep in mind that we will match the color code exactly with a high temperature two part epoxy formula. This means that, although the base color will be exactly the same, the actual appearance may not match your vehicles finish exactly. This occurs because your car has a basecoat, clear coat finish. It is especially noticeable if you have a metallic or pearlescent color. It is virtually impossible to exactly match metallic and pearlescent colors for several reasons, the most obvious being metallics look very different when brushed on versus being sprayed on.
Custom G2 BRAKE Caliper Paint System™ based on color code can be purchased for $99.99 plus shipping and handling.
Acura/Honda -- Color id plate generally on the drivers door jamb.
Audi -- Hidden around the spare tire on a paper tag and can often be loose or folded over
BMW -- Usually underneath the hood by the strut towers.
Ford -- Always on the drivers door jamb, but often they will have the color code above where it says "Exterior Paint Code".
GM -- GM has a fairly confusing code system. Often there will be a BC CC before the color code. This stands for Basecoat/Clearcoat. The U in the paint code means the Upper Color and the L means the Lower Color. Don't get confused by the BC CC and the U and L, they are not actually a part of your color code.

If however you begin adding additional paint, whether it be another G2 color or not, as well as any other pigments you skew the formula which may have adverse effects on the finished product, especially the heat resistant and high gloss qualities, which are generally why you are using the G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set in the first place.
For the sake of simplicity let's say the pre-measured amount of paint for the color you purchased is 4 oz. And the pre-measured amount of reactor is 3/4 oz. That would be the optimum mix. If you add 1/4 oz. Of white to lighten up that color you now have 4 1/4 oz. Of paint and 3/4 oz. Of reactor. The formula has been skewed.
It went from:
4 oz. of paint and 3/4 oz. of reactor
4 1/4 oz. of paint and 3/4 oz. of reactor.
You'll need to use either a portable aerosol sprayer with a wide enough nozzle, or if you are using an airbrush or paint gun you'll need to use a tip that's wide enough to accomodate the thickness of our paint. Generally a primer tip or anything wider than 2mm will do nicely.
Some of you may remember that the G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set had a shelf life of 6 months. The shelf life has been extended from 6 months to 18 months based on an improved vaccum seal cap which is now being used on the reactor which has greatly increased the viability period of the reactor, thereby increasing the shelf life of the product.
If the kit is less than 3 years old you can purchase a replacement reactor. For our G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set you'll need a:
1/2 Oz. G2 Brake Caliper Paint System Replacement Reactor
For our G2™ High Temperature Engine Paint System Set you'll need a:
3/4 Oz. G2 Engine Paint System Replacement Reactor
If your kit is 3 years old or older it is reccommended that you replace the entire kit.
However if you have over-sized calipers on the front of your vehicle and/or if you are planning on painting your brackets, rotor caps etc. you'll probably need two kits.
In fact, using a primer with our paint may have adverse effects on the finished product. Although the G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set is heat resistant and won't chip or peel we cannot say the same for most primers. So if you apply the G2™ High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System Set over a substrate that isn't heat resistant, or has a tendency to chip and peel this will have less than desirable effects on the top coat.
There will be no discount offered for the removal of the aerosol cleaner, and there will be absolutely no exceptions.
In order to process a warranty kit we will need three things from you:
1) A receipt/invoice for your purchase.
2) Pictures of the chipping or peeling.
3) The name and address you would like the warranty kit shipped to.
