Drum colour

1001 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  1BADI5
Does any one know the original colour of the drums on a 2010 with aluminum rims?
I'm in the midst of sandblasting them for repainting? I assume they would be black or silver?
Also has anyone used POR-15 chassis coat on these and how did they hold up to the heat?

The factory original replacement drums are bare cast iron and may have been painted satin black from the assembly plant. The POR-15 product is like a 2-part urethane bed liner and not suitable for high temperatures imo. I'd recommend using a high temp 2-part epoxy paint or brake caliper paint that's satin black in color.
thanks, I think a satin black would look the best as to not draw the looks away from the rims, BTW the POR-15 is a one part system, just have to thin when spraying, great stuff, I've used it on parts of my chassis, also works on rust. i will be using epoxy primer and then a satin black caliper paint, thanks.
High temp engine paint from either VHT or Duplicolor work great.

Both are rated for up to 550*

I just painted up a new set for mine today; I also prepped with the high temp primer too.
thanks, good info, I will be priming them first as well
No problem
