I know the paint has to cure but don't want to put them in my oven I was wondering it it would work if I put them in a toaster oven???

An oven is an oven, and heat is heat. A toaster oven will be just fine, but life is way more fun when your SO catches you putting interesting things in the oven from time to time.

Can you use a heat gun instead of oven? My wife would kill me if I put those in the oven

Would yellow look ok? I bought a duplicolor yellow caliper paint kit at 99c store for 99c a while ago, there were no other colors

Painted my Calipers today and put the logo in there. It's not a IS350 Caliper, but It'll do!

Default Caliper Color?

Hello everyone. I just picked up an is350c. Star fire pearl with saddle interior. I'm having f-sport springs & sways put on this week. Im having calipers painted at same time. Have white decals. Deciding b/w blue & red for calipers. Thoughts? Was leaning toward blue but think maybe red would flow with interior.

^depemds if you're going to add anything else either color. I started off with blue items because it was F Sport color, then changed to red because my big brake kit was red.

Gotcha. I'm sticking to f-sport mods. I was just curious if there might be experience with red v. Blue calipers and the saddle interior.
