After some testing today, Inferno Orange can have silver letters and clearcoat!
Mike, did you by chance test this silver letters and clear coat with the Crystal Red?

Well, I thought the previous picture was the closest I could get to brembo gold, but I dialed it in a little better, so a new color is now available:


and next to a real brembo


Its not 100%, but if you didn't have them side by side, I don't think you would know and its a pretty color all on its own anyways.

Received my calipers on Thursday. Had them installed today. I'll post pictures of them on my Camaro tomorrow . I am VERY HAPPY! They are beautiful!!

I'll be shipping my original calipers back to Mike on Monday. That way another person on the list can get theirs done.

Well, another customer decided to purchase my cores for the 350 deposit. :(

That is not the purpose of the core program! I can not replace a set of brakes for even the net $680 that I charge for coating, shipping and core.

As a result, the core charge is no $650. I know it may run some people off, but it is fully refunded, and I can't keep losing money like this.

I now only have 4 core sets, so it will take a little longer to get to you.

Additionally, I will be in the North Carolina mountains until sunday with very limited phone and internet service, so I probably wont answer pms, emails or calls until sunday night.

thanks
Mike

Dang Mike, that sucks, sorry to hear that. But you have to do what you have to do. I wish there was a better way to get these back from people.

Wow, Mike! There are just some people that like to take advantage of a good thing. You are providing an excellent service to us and we really appreciate it. I personally think this individual is scum for taking advantage of your gracious policy.

Heck, my son wanted my front calipers and I told him that even with the core charge, you wouldn't be able to recoup the loss. He understood and agreed. My son is a smart young man at the ripe old age of 19.

I thank you again for doing such an awesome job on my calipers. They just scream excellent craftsmanship!

1 1/2 years later and the durability on these are awesome. They look the same today as when I put them on!!

Worth every penny!!

Crap. I was just making headway with the wife about getting these at the original cost but now at almost a grand, there's no way I'll be able to get these.

Big thanks to the buyers who blew it for the rest of us. smfh

Thanks for the great business acumen Mike, I got my core refund already. Sorry for the need to change the business policy, but as stated business is business. The new core charge is steep, but I can say without question the product will not disappoint you.

As a reminder, for those in the position to do so, you can arrange with Mike to have a quick turn on your own calipers (no core charge) if you can handle your car being parked for a couple of days.
