Where can I get the G2 Caliper Kit. I definitely want this mod.
http://www.g2usa.com/ , You can order it right from their website. Either submit your color code for your car for the custom caliper paint kit for 90+ bux, or go with a standard color for $42.... I went with the G2 Orange and it looks great.... could've got the color code matching IOM, but I saw posts where people showed the standard orange matching well, so I went with that.

Completed the painting of my calipers today. Here are the photos while the wheels are off. I will take some more photos tomorrow after I put the wheels back on and drive it back out of the garage.

I wouldn't try it.... You definitely want to spray your engine cover, this paint comes in a can with a brush.....
Plus you need the adhesion promoter, cleaner, primer, basecoat, clearcoat to do the cover.... go to paintscratch.com and you can order the kit. I think it cost me like 89 bux, but I did the engine cover, fuse box cover, and taillight covers in the back.
Check out the "covers" link in my signature.

Also you have to mix an activator in with the paint when doing the calipers, so it only lasts a few hours and any left over paint is no longer good.

The G2 Kit is an excellent kit to use. I went to their website to order when I had my Honda Element. I was going to go with them again until I found covers which not only cover but also are functional in that they allow your calipers to work 30 to 50% cooler being made of aircraft aluminum and work as a heat sink.

I hope this question isn't too stupid. My Brembo's seem to have a rubber coating on them. Is that just a cover, and I can take it off? Or, are my calipers somewhat different? I really like the orange and want my calipers painted, I looked at the caliper covers but I'm not sure I like the look. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you need to take off the calipers to paint them? and if you do, how do you take them off? after you paint them, do you need a torque wrench to torque it back to a certain whatever lbs? also are there certain parts where you should not paint because they will need to be removed and will cause it to chip and crack?

Sorry my english is bad lol. Thanks guys.

DO IT and post some pics.. I want to do mine white too. But I want to see how they would look before I jump on the bandwagon.

Did this to my old scion tc, and when I sold it last year they were really faded and chipped. If I do it to my camaro I will go powder coated or the caliper covers.

Well had it done for about 3 months with the G2 Paint kit.... taken the wheels off a few times, and still no chips etc.
I'm happy thus far
