My rocker cover and belt guard was done in 2 pac (only way to get my colour). But I'm using VHT in black on my calipers / hubs.

Very happy with both.

That cover in black looks great, better than red, looks like a fake XR wannabe cover, well done Glen on the different look.

thanks guys. I like the red too but i had black left over from spraypainting my grill. Came up awesome, and i sandpapered the writing back to silver too. JC from fordforums told me how to do it. Pretty easy.

VHT is just a brand doofus. prolly use VHT engine paint to do the colour then clear on top to get the shine and protection!

High temp..you mean track or normal day to day driving?

I've VHT'd my brake calipers and hubs, It's held up over a year, even with numerous track days.
