Positive indication of track usage! I remember my 2006 CTS-V and remember trying to get them to that color.

IDK if the powder coating turns like the paint does on these calipers.

Thanks...

Haven't even cleaned them up yet.

I want to sell the whole set though. All 4 calipers with pads and hoses and the rotors.

I've been thinking that shipping with the rotors will be cost prohibitive. If anyone is interested I'm willing to sell the set up without rotors for less cash.

Very sharp looking. I've been considering the brake upgrade as well, but I think I like the standard red look.

Here are some pics of my stock 1LE brakes. As you can see they are near perfect. Less than 5K miles.

Everything was labled and packed 90% ready to be shipped.

I'm willing to separate and sell the calipers by themselves. I know the shipping of the rotors may be cost prohibitive. PM for pricing and details.

That's not my car or headers. I wish they were though. I just ordered the headers today from JDP and they will be coated satin black. They posted that pic of her today figured it would work well with my thread update... lol

Just scored a hell of a deal on a NIB never installed Fluidampr UDP. Once the headers and UDP get here I'll set up to get the tune done. I'm hoping to get 425/425 to the wheels. We'll see...

Talked to Tyler from JDP the other day... Headers are being coated. I should see them in a week or so.

I also ordered a crank pin kit just because I plan to road course her which will rev the piss out of the motor a pinned crank damper will make me feel better.

I'm also looking to possible upgrade the rocker trunions with the Comp Cams kit. More warm and fuzziness... lol

I'm planning on hitting my first Road Course the end of January with two buddies. One has a '09 G8 and the other has an '06 Roush Mustang GT. We plan to make him feel the GM superiority over beer and wings. His treat... lol

Sold my stock Red calipers today. So I'm really considering buying the ACS GTZ hood. LPE is having an incredible deal on them.

http://www.acscomposite.com/project/...626&id=2068469

I will have it painted Matte Black and then have the underside done gloss black in a single stage. Or I could have the whole thing done BC/CC and then get it wrapped like the stock hood.

IDK what do you guys think I should do?
