I sure hope a Civic brake caliper isn't the same size as a Prelude's.

Re: brembo caliper cover fit will work on prelude?

Sorry man looks like a waste of money to me. Can of paint is 6.00$. Dinky lookin plastic covers that most likely dont fit 80$. Looks pretty straight forward... besides thats false advertising on your behalf... anyone who knows anything about cars will be able to tell they're not Brembo brakes... And I dont know about anybody else but I would be forced to call BS if I saw them... Kinda like a Turbonator...

Re: brembo caliper cover fit will work on prelude?

Theres this kid that lives in my area with a turbonator on his CRX. I wish I had a camcorder at that time. I know we're not supposed to talk about street racing, but I sat at a light with him one day asking if it was boosted. Needless to say I called BS cuz I watched him drive by minutes before with no blow off and a pussy sized spool up that could only come from one of these disgraces to the spocom community. The rest is history...

Re: brembo caliper cover fit will work on prelude?

This is actually a thread? Jebus Crisco. you want stopping power? actually get some good pads. The same $90 or so and your car will stop better than any caliper cover could do. Don't even paint the calipers, if you're not gonna remove them and get all the corners.

Re: brembo caliper cover fit will work on prelude?

Man, those things look NOTHING like brembo calipers. Except for the ones in the second pic on the porsche, and they only look like brembos because they are the real deal. I reckon your money would be much better spent on some new pads or a service....

Matt.

Caliper paint works but so does engine enamel and it comes in many different colors. Costs under 10bux a can. And as said above, pull the calipers off before you paint them or they will look like duke.

I used both, lol.
I used actual caliper paint on the front with the red.
And I had some black engine enamel that I used on the back to make the fronts stand out more.
