I dont mind having to touch it up if the brake fluid crazes it a little bit. But if its total failure or something then I may use the red G2 on the calipers themselves and POR-15 on the brackets.silverarrow27 wrote: ↑Sun Mar 26, 2023 11:55 pmUpdate us on which you ended up using for calipers.

Not sure what this stuff is made from, but you can soak small pieces in it for a couple of days, cleans down to the pores without raising a finger, and leaves a Superman rust preventative coating on it that looks pretty much impregnable.
