Powder coat Brembos

I'm powder coating my Brembos. I was thinking inferno orange or victory red any ideas?

Don't know if there is a IOM powder. That's why I went with IOM paint from G2.

Does your car have stripes? My SS is black with Cyber Gray rally stripes, so I sent the calipers to Mike The Powdercoater and he went with a very similar color gray to match and then did the Brembo lettering in black to match the rest of the car...the gray is not exactly the same, but it's a very good match...it's worth asking him if he can match, or get very close to it, he's a great guy to deal with.

I prefer the classic red. Color matched to the body looks good as well. Any (other) color would largely depend on the color theme of your car and/or personal preference.

I have Gray Hockey Stripes. That sounds like a great color. Do you have any pictures.

I found a complete used set of CTSV rotors and calipers from another member on here paid $1600. Then I stripped the paint to bare metal.

Ordered the G2 IOM paint which was $100. Hung them and used a spray gun to paint them.

I think if I was gonna powder coat them I got a quote of $75 per caliper. I wanted IOM so I used the G2 system.

There out there. I think some vendors sell the fronts as a kit painted already.
