Nice! I gave one vehicle some TLC today, but it was the wife's Pilot and not the compass!

If I end up getting the 2" spring lift (yellow springs), I was thinking of painting the calipers yellow. How hard is it to get the calipers off?

just a few bolts take them off shmup-0.

thx Cherokee, we spent alot of time on the calipers they come apart in 2 pieces the half that came off the vehicle got cleaned by wire wheel. the other half with the brake hose stayed on and got cleaned with steel wool and brake cleaner. i think in total we spent like 5 hours in the shop, that included the oil change and doing the plugs.

we werent in a hurry im sure the job could be done in less time. spent a ton of time cleaning them. each caliper got 3 coats of paint all set by the heat gun. we strive for perfection at the shop lol
