Got bored Monday, Painted Calipers

I took off my calipers, sanded with scotch bright, cleaned, painted with hi temp engine paint, used hi temp clear. I let them dry overnight, then installed stickers i got off ebay.

Looks really good man! I was thinking about doing mine actually. Just not sure what color I want to run with on my car. I got the whole car blacked out. Was thinking red or yellow. I like the porsche look yellow or red with black or white text. Was thinking of putting "camaro" on it as well!

Your calipers look fantastic... I so want my calipers powdercoated (Victory Red, hint hint)..

Ya know, you could have a lot of potential "customers" here with that fine work. There is another first-class vendor here on this site, but he's backed up several months out.

Nice...

Looks very nice, I painted mine yellow at the beginning of the year. There are some pics floating around in the regional northwest section for those that are interested.
