    Question Brake caliper paint code/colour?

    Hi, does anyone know what colour or paint code of the blue on the corsa vxr calipers?

    Got the day off work and decided to change the rear pads and discs, the nearside was changed no problem but when I went to change the offside rear I've found to my disappointment that my caliper has siezed solid. Absolutely gutted as getting the mot done 9am tomorrow morning and I know it's going to fail. Going to order 2 new rear calipers and paint them in the original colour as a blue caliper directly from Vauxhall is £250

    Preferred colour is the standard blue if you know the paint code would be great

    Mate, theres a rake of blue calipers on ebay for around £40, I wouldn't hesitate to give one of those a go 1st rather than buy new.

    Well I've already "bit the bullet" and ordered pair of brand new rear calipers for £75 from eBay, seems extremely cheap to be honest but for the price I'm going to give them a punt. Picked up some halfords blue caliper paint yesterday as most people on here have recommended it . Will paint them and get them fitted hopefully at the weekend then will update this thread on the quality of the calipers when I receive them. Thanks again guys.
