I have a few (dumb) questions about the paint process. The duct taped area inside covers more than just the pistons. Is that going to show the old color of the caliper? I have a feeling the pads will hide it, but you probably want some paint there so it doesn't rust. Also, did you paint the machined mounting spot?

1. I think the calipers are aluminum.
2. My car is garage kept and I don't ever see any rust. Only ever light orange dust on the rotors after a wash or a bit around the hub lip after a wash is all.
3. The area covered by tape that's not being painted yellow, was painted another color before, when it was on the Porsche. I didn't remove the original paint (if there was any) from that area.
4. For looks - you can't see it. You can't see it due to the pads, due to the pad retainer, due to brake dust, due to the wheels being on, you get the idea.

For these reasons, I did what I did. You could simply cut out circles of the duct tape to cover the pistons/seals or, of course, you could remove the pistons/seals and paint.

For the mounting surface, no I did not paint that.

Dude my brakes squeal is out of control. It seems to get worse and louder as the pads heat up and I drive for longer periods of time. the pads are like brand-new I don't know I don't know what brand they are in the guy that sold them to me told me they were Street pads not trackpads.

The only thing I can think of is maybe I don't have the dampers?? But I'm trying to figure out an easy way to tell if I have them or not. If I take the brake pads out what's an easy way to tell that I have the dampers?

If you know what to look for, you could simply look (wheel removed).

If not, a simple test is to remove wheel, then the clip/retainer and rod so that you have access to the pads. If you have the dampers, you won't be able to get the pads out (dampers will be stuck in pistons). Without the dampers, the pads, with some effort (perhaps a little leverage to force the pistons back), should be able to come out.

That's the quick way. You could remove the calipers, of course.

I distinctly remember when I was installing the calipers to the rotors on my car the pads were still in the calipers because we remove them from somebody else's car... and when I went to install the caliper on my rotor and bolt it on the pads were very loose I had to keep moving them out of the ways of they would clear the rotor....

I take it based on that and the fact that you said if I do have dampers I will not be able to get the pads out that means if I had dampers the pads should not have been moving back and forth so loosely.

I will check anyways just to be sure but also I think I have the part numbers for the dampers off to go dig them up somewhere but if I install them does that mean I could not change pads out of the top anymore I always have to take the caliper off like traditional pad swapping.

Welcome TJK!

Nextel - yes, sound like you're without them. Fine for the track wit quick pad changes, but with them, you'd have to remove the caliper off the rotor to swap pads.

Part numbers for the dampers are in the OP now (at the end)

Friend of mine recommended these guys for caliper paint. They can also match the stock Red Brembo color.
