Soul Red Brake Calipers

I just brought home a 2017 Deep Crystal Blue GT with Parchment interior. I love the white seats with the dark exterior. I found out that G2 makes custom caliper paint in Mazda Soul Red (at an extra cost) which matches the red in the interior. Done.

Congrats! And excellent choice of car color

Since you have the 2017, could you take a picture of your active driving display? Apparently they've added some color to it I would just like to see how it looks.

I heard the updated the Mazda3 with some color but didn't realize it made its way to the CX3 already. I'd also love to see a picture!

I intend to place red film over the mirror so it matches better than the green.

Yeah I could be wrong and maybe it's not on the CX-3 yet.

There's no change from '16, it's still green.

Brush. I put on three coats although the can comes with enough paint for probably twice that. I just got tired/bored of painting and three is plenty. I wouldn't want to try to mask off everything you'd need to spray it.

It turned out great. Did you have to clean the caliper with anything before painting ?

The G2 kit I used comes with a spray can of cleaner for the calipers but I literally painted mine the day after I brought the car home so there was no need to use the spray to clean them. If that wasn't the case they definitely recommend cleaning the calipers first.
