jus had a sudden thought im painting my calipers at the moment but , erm. whats the best way to clean them when they get dirty?

also they will have transfers on them, i know a few of you have mg logo ones on your calipers. do they come off easily? or get stracthed easily?

Not sure if you mean how to clean them before painting or after?

If before then you need some brake cleaner (available from Halfrauds) and a brush. Its easier if you unbolt the caliper and reomve the pads so that you can get into all the corners.

I use AG engine cleaner to clean my powder coated APs. I found wheel cleaners tend to fade the paint over time. The logos on the AP calipers are cast into the caliper, but I imagine the stick on logos as sold on ebay would need replacing every year or 2.
