Plugged all the holes with plastic plugs. Tapped over the pistons and pad contact area, kinda shoddily. Taped over the mounting holes, but again, didn't do too much effort in making it as minimal as possible, since you don't see those areas.

Will let them sit for a day before even handling them, asides from pulling the plugs and whatnot. They'll cure over a week before I even put them on. Ordered Neuspeed lines, need to grab some Z23 pads.

I need this to paint my rear calipers black to match my TT RS bbk so Acadia’s OCD will calm down lol
I purchased the G2 twice. First time was to paint the Macans and second was to match the rears. VW red on the calipers had more blue than the G2. Drove me crazy. When I go back to bronze wheels, going to paint then black but think I’ll go with VHT spray on.

I went with this at @Maiden69's recommendation.

Liked that it was a 2 part system in a single can. Seemed to go on fine.

Didn't want to handle them too much, but they look like they came out fine.
