    whats the drying times of the calipers, i need to paint mine but i used some hammerite paint on something at home a few weeks ago and took 2-3 days to fully dry and i dont have that long to have the car off the road!

    Mine dried pretty quickly, I can't remember how long as it was a while ago. I can't see it being problematic though.
