Painted Calipers

Was wondering if anyone had any advice on getting the Calipers on my Red RS painted Red. I am not really the type to do it myself, looking for a place in Michigan to do it. Also any idea on price?

Thanks in Advance....

Its so easy to do your self. If you have a jack and a tire iron, just purchase the paint that comes with the brush. Dont buy the spray on stuff, it makes too much of a mess with over spray. The brush is so easy to use a kindergardener could do it. I have done it many times on all of my cars. Buy the stuff by G2.

Powder coating is another option you might want to consider. Eastwood sells do-it-yourself kits for a reasonable price. I`ve used it with good results and if I can do it without screwing it up, then I`m pretty anyone can do it.
