clear coated the Brembo Calipers

Think they should have done this from the factory, I like thee subtleness of the stock grey brake rotor, I just wished Gm would have clear coated the caliper. it makes them easier to clean also!

No biggie some high temp engine clear coat paint and it's all good.

here is the front rotors:

Looks really good actually. Would you guys just clear it after seeing this or redo it in a gloss black with orange brembo lettering (deleting the chevrolet in it)?

That color combo. is my plan...

Might be a bump question but did you have to pull the calipers off the car? They look awesome.

silverice, calipers stayed on just a little patience, blue 2" masking tape and some newspaper to mask off the areas you don't want painted.
