I did the exact same thing; I then turned them upside down & used the same template to paint the interior of the hat. VHT caliper paint in "Cast Aluminum" - they look gooood.



(I suppose they'll look even better once they're installed :))

Oops - forgot to mention spray on brake cleaner first.

After using the Brake Cleaner and a Wire Brush, finish off with some Laquer Thinner. Then your ready for painting.....

After cleaniing with sand paper or wire brush apply naval jelly to disolve the last bit and leave a good surface for the paint.
