Default Changed Caliper Paint!!

So I changed my caliper paint because, I have so much F-Sport stuff I figured I might as well change the color to F-Sport blue. I will post pics later, I also wanted to know if I should replace all my wheel studs as one was broken so wondering if I should get them all done over or just replacing that one was fine.

What paint did you use? Seems like u didnt mask good, you can see the painted shims and brake pads.

I would have painted the shims and brake pads as well. It looks better.

I decided not to mask off shims, planning on getting new ones. The brake pads are not painted. Dupicolor.

PS: The hood is popped because I was about to check my coolant fluid level.
