The ones that hold the caliper to the spindle. I am painting my rotor hats and will be putting it back together in a few. Anyone know the number of foot lbs on these bplts?

Also FYI check wheel torque in a couple days, if paint isn't totally dry it will crush and loosen wheel torque. Also if not totally dry, I let mine dry overnight and it still did it, paint will transfer to wheel, come off rotor and leave shadow.

Now's a good time to Rejex wheels to protect against brake dust.:thumbsup:

I looked at that once and did not see it. Looked again and there it was right on top. Thanks.

Maybe I should cook them in the oven at about 200 for a while.

Instructions on the paint say for maximum hardness cure at 300 for 2 hours. So that's what Im going to do.
