calipers painted!

Painted my calipers yesterday using the G2 paint system and the picture speaks for itself! product is amazing! it was about 68 degrees yesterday, started early morning and put the wheels back on around 4:00. YOU MUST ALLOW THEM TO DRY FOR AT LEAST 2 HOURS BEFORE PUTTING THE WHEELS ON. I drove it last night and no signs of dust or chipping. Also bought brembo decals off ebay to stick on! i put about 5 coats on, there was probably enough left in the can for another coat! if you have any questions please ask!

Looks great. I did the same thing with the larger white Brembo sticker. Red and black go good together.

Did you paint over the Camaro and Brembo parts and then decal them both? What's that process entail?

Did you also have to take the calipers off?

Looks amazing!

The factory decals can not be removed so you have to paint over them and then buy some new decals to put on them if you want it.

You do not have to remove the calipers.

Here is the link to who painted mine. I would recommend a car cover or some additional masking as there was some slight over spray afterwards. http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=338071

Thanks for the link and pictures. I'm ordering this tonight! Prior to reading this I thought the only option was spray paint but this looks great and less worrying about overspray.

I masked mine off like the guy in the link. For all, its easy, just takes time, newspaper and duct tape. Spray thin coats, wait 10 minutes and do another till it covers completely. Use brake cleaner spray to clean up overspray and the rotor faces. Oh yeah I used duplicolor ceramic caliper spraypaint
