He's out of North Carolina I believe. I think a link to his site is in there somewhere.

Powdercoating is just a side job for him so you may have to wait but it will be worth it. He does great work.

I went with black with powdercoat blue sparkles. The sparkles show up more in the sun.




If I where you, I would try to do something different. Maybe black with green brembo words.

You have two options.

You can send yours in off the car, that's what I did. He had them done in one day and shipped back the next day. I think it was like 5 total days or something. He's crazy fast if you send yours.

The other option (if yours is a DD and you can't be without brakes for a week) is you get put on a wait list. He does some, sends them to you, then you send your unpainted ones back to him. This list can take months, but I'm not sure what it's at right now.

Either way, powdercoat is better than paint.

Have them powdercoated. It's worth the time, wait, and money. They turn out flawless and the durability is much better than paint.

I normally would say go with a contrasting color like I did; however, with your color I think green with black lettering would look really sharp. Just do what makes you happy. Anything is better than the factory look in my opinion.

Yes go with Mike, I was one of his first Camaro caliper powder coating job and he is one of the best I have worked with. I have had them for awhile now with no problems. If you decide to do it go with Mike.

Ohh and he is from Georgia.

How long ago did you do that? I painted mine similarly, with meticulous prep, and it started flaking in about 6 months.

Yes. When you open the can though you wont think so, I thought it wouldnt be enough. The can is only like half full. But it covered mine fine and that was even with 3 coats.
