Thanks I really appreciate the complements. This was a very easy DIY with a lot of bang for very little $$$. Total cost for everything was about $65 and my time.

I'm a newb to this, can you explain some of the prep work you did? What did you use to clean, did you sand, did you use adhesive promoter? did you remove caliper or just cover up tape up and spray?

Go to www.g2usa.com and check out the site. This is where I purchased the paint to do the caliper it is an epoxy mix.

prep work was easy. The kit from G2 comes with cleaner. I gave them a light brush and sprayed with the cleaner provided. Taped off the caliper and the paint is applied with a brush the epoxy smooths out to leave no brush marks. took about 4 coats. I only needed one kit to do the job.
