just make sure you dont buy the cheep kind... buy the 3 stage one... and do a proper job (sand your calipers... let sit for as long as needed, ect....) so it wont flake off

Don't go ricer style and paint your calipers. If you want your calipers colored break them down, have them powdercoated, and rebuild them.

Paint is ghetto, and even the good paints will fade, bubble, and flake.

I completely diassembled my calipers, cleaned them up the best I could with solvents and dropped them off at the powdercoaters. They then spent 1hr media blasting them to bare metal, then powdercoated them the color of my choice.

Bill ended up being $140 or so. Powdercoat is pretty much for life.

Those calipers look good Jordan, but do us all a favor, and change those ugly ass rims.

Jordan.. as much as I think you're an honest asshole.. ahah.. you do things right man!

i had a really half assed paintjob done and the next time I do it (this winter).. it's going to be done like yours was.. every nut and bolt greased and polished and replaced.*th-up*

polish them and clear them. or polish them and paint them with a translucent powdercoat colour, that would be sick, if possible.
