Since your color choice is close to the original, ever think about clear cloating, its a lot easier and adds an upgraded look to the chalky stock ones.

Personally I still think red with the big Brembo stickers would really make it pop. You'll see them from a mile away that way.

And....as mention before....do a search on Mike@thepowdercoater. You won't regret it.

Should have plenty of samples here. Mike is the man to go to when it comes to powder coating brakes.

This looks absolutely sick...exactly what I want mine to look like. I assume these are the stock brembo's that come on the SS, but mike just painted over and added his own labels?

Not painted.....powder coated. Which should hold up as good or better than paint.

Yes...they are the stock Brembo calipers. You can have your choice of stickers. I like the big Brembo sticker but some like it to look just like the factory but with a nicer color. Look through Mike's thread I posted above. All the info and samples you'll need are in there.
