What's written on the brembo brakes

On the pictures from the Indy bash 2008 can anyone tell what's written
on the brembos. I think it looks like cheverolet or camaro and then brembo
written in red lettering! Nice looking but I'd rather have the brakes in red!!

First thing I might suggest everyone do when they buy the car is spray those calipers with a high temperature clear sealant. Or maybe after the first few months to be sure all the paint is cured.

Over time, I've noticed no matter how well you try to take care of colored calipers, even when painted with multiple coats of high temp paint, they will tend to discolor and rust if not protected.

Now, I don't know - the paint and/or material used on it may be very resistant to the long term (5 years) degrading effects of rain, dirt, snow/salt.

It would be a terrible shame for those calipers to start looking nasty, and you'll never ever be able to repaint the Chevrolet and Brembo lettering.

Another pic from the passenger side

Hey first post here. Here is a pic I took of the front right caliper with a tad bit more detail.

Hi-temp clear coat sounds like a good idea. I'd mount a kill switch somewhere in the car too.

Man, those calipers alone are works of art.

Just goes to show how the Camaro team sweated the details. You usually talk about Ferrari calipers as works of art, but these are just as beautiful.

I'm starting to think I wouldn't want to drive this car - just buy it and keep it in the garage as a piece of art......

On second thought, nah

I think the brakes as they are look nice. All in red I wouldn't be happy with. That would just stick out like a sore thumb on a Silver Camaro... I like a nice clean monochromatic (with subtle highlights of another color) color palatte.
