I got my mate to take the calipers off to paint them (you can do a much better job this way than leaving them on) Keeping them clean isnt hard, they are generally cleaned when i use the mag wheel cleaner on my rims.

how hard is it to remove and replace your calipers? do i need to remove the pads to paint them? generally ive left everything to do with the brakes to professionals. also while were on the subject of brakes, is a set of bf fpv pbr upgrade brakes going to fit an fg? are they an upgrade to the fg stock brakes?
