I agree on not wanting them to stand out. Painted mine with Black G2 to make them "hide". Love the look.

How did you save the original "Brembo/Chevrolet" logos on them?
Looks really good!

Powder coating is the best option.
More work but will last longer then paint, and look better for a longer time.
I'd like to get mine powder coated.

Please be aware those are the upgraded Brembos powdercoated.

I'd save up for the Brembos.

I painted mine, finally the car wash after one year, tried to wash some off, I am going to buy caliper covers for my RS now. I dont want to keep touching up. The RS covers are 199.00 on amazon.

And I know I can just paint them myself for way cheaper but I rather not even attempt it

IMO, with the Brembo calibers, I'd have them powder coated like I plan on doing with mine.
But like mentioned above, the smaller calibers do look smaller painted a shiny color. Wonder what they would look like painted a matt or flat color, has anyone tried that?
If I had the smaller calibers I'd buy the covers depending on the durability of them, it makes them look Bigger AND Shiny.

If you where in LA I would help you. Or save up for a used SS Brembo take off set. Can be had for 500-650.

Having had powedercoated ones, painted ones and cover-covered ones...

Powdercoating is the way to go. Cheap, durable and looks great.
