Frequently Asked Questions

Answer #1

Answer #2

The durability and safety of the paint used to customize car brake calipers can vary depending on the type of paint and the manufacturer. In general, high-quality paints specifically formulated for brake calipers are durable and safe to use. These types of paints are designed to withstand the high temperatures and harsh conditions that brake calipers are exposed to, and they should not affect the performance of the braking system.

However, it’s important to note that not all paint is suitable for use on brake calipers, and using the wrong type of paint can result in poor durability, safety hazards, and potentially damage to the braking system. It’s important to use paint that is specifically formulated for brake calipers, as these paints have been tested for high-temperature resistance, chemical resistance and other properties that make them suitable for this application.

Answer #4

Both paint and powder coating are suitable options for customizing brake calipers, but each has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.

Paint is a liquid coating that is applied to the brake calipers using a brush or spray gun. It can be easily customized to match the color of your vehicle or to create a unique design. Paint is also relatively easy to apply and can be done at home if you have the necessary equipment and knowledge. However, paint is not as durable as powder coating and may require more frequent touch-ups or reapplication.

Powder coating, on the other hand, is a dry powder that is applied to the brake calipers using an electrostatic process. The powder is then cured under heat, creating a hard and durable finish. Powder coating is more resistant to chipping, fading, and discoloration than paint, and is better at withstanding the high temperatures and harsh conditions that brake calipers are exposed to. However, powder coating is more difficult to apply, and requires specialized equipment and knowledge.

So, it depends on your preferences, budget and the level of durability you are looking for. If you want an easy and inexpensive way to customize your brake calipers, paint may be the better option for you. However, if you want a more durable and long-lasting finish, powder coating is the better choice.

In summary, both paint and powder coating are viable options for customizing brake calipers, but the best choice will depend on your specific needs, budget, and the level of durability you are looking for.

Brake caliper paint can be formulated to be rust-resistant, but not all brake caliper paints are created equal. Rust resistance is an important factor to consider when choosing a paint for brake calipers because brake calipers are exposed to high temperatures, road debris, and other harsh conditions that can cause rust to form.

"Highly recommend them."
I have an older F 250 like new. Had Billy put new stereo, alarm, keyless entry, back up cam etc. Everything was perfect except the key FOB. FOB kept failing. Every time it failed Billy had me bring the truck back in. They finally figured out the issue. Its been almost two years since and keyless entry/FOB, alarm etc working flawless. Billy always professional and stuck it out until they solved the problem. Could not be a happier ending. Highly recommend them.

"Billy and his team exceeded my expectations..."
Went to Audio Toyz to have a JL Audio Stealth Subwoofer, Amplifier, and navigation override installed on my 2017 Cadillac Escalade. I met with Billy and felt very comfortable with his product knowledge and and experience in the field of car audio among other auto related things. Billy and his team exceeded my expectations and added some things that I didn't even think about to add to the vehicle at a cost much less than his competitors. I would recommend Billy and Audio Toyz to anyone in Orange County that's looking for any and all car audio upgrades. Thanks again Billy and Audio Toyz!

"Honest and quick service!"
What do I received? Honest and quick service! The only thing that was not so great was the waiting list time . But considering that they offer services on place with limited staff, it's totally understandable (and also seems they have a lot of work).

"Excellent service from everyone."
I thought I'd add another 5 star review to the Audio Toyz collection. I was originally working with another shop nearby to have some auxiliary power supplies installed. Now I'm glad they never got back to me with an appointment. I found Audio Toyz closer to my house, service far more personable, and they installed the power supplies along with a dedicated plug for my air compressor all for a fraction of what the other shop wanted to charge just for the power supplies. Excellent service from everyone. I highly recommend.

"Will come back here for more upgrades without a doubt."
This place is amazing and filled with knowledgeable people that know and understand what they're doing. I knew nothing about inverters, installation or how they work until Billy (owner) was able to break everything down for me and explain in detail of what I can run when I'm camping. I set up my appointment and the following week they were ready to accommodate me. Excellent job. The work is just so clean and beyond professional and the price is very reasonable. Will come back here for more upgrades without a doubt.
