There's no cotter pins anywhere....

Painting ain't worth it unless you can actually see the calipers through the wheel. lol. It's up to you...I did mine a long long long time ago in red. Then never cared about it and never cleaned 'em....now i just let 'em chill lookin' ugly...you can't see 'em through my wheels. lol.


Remove wheel, remove caliper(14mm wrench), remove caliper mounting bracket(15mm), slide off rotor. Install is reverse. Just remember RED locktite on the caliper mounting bracket bolts(the ones that bolt to the knuckle. Those things like to walk out and remember to tighten 'em down like a mo fo. lol.
