Caliper Gold Paint.

Recommended Posts

Humbrol Paints #54 is an exact match for the Brembo Gold caliper paint.

 

It can be found in any hobby/model shop that sells airfix kits and the like.

Does it need a clear coat or any finishing product on top?

 

shouldn't do as its an enamel.

 

if you ever did airfix as a kid you never had to clear coat over the top.

The best way I've found of applying the Humbrol is to use a cocktail stick instead of a brush as you can dab the tiniest amount of paint to the damage, build it up if necessary and you're left with no brush marks.

And no you won't need any clearcoat as the Hunbrol is Enamel.

Agreed, the original paint appears to be rather thick so when its chipped it is necessary to build up layers. :thumbs:
