    Where to get V decals for calipers

    Hey guys I am cleaning up my calipers and going to give them a fresh coat of paint. I am looking for new V decals in black for them. Does anyone know where we can pick up a set of these. Last I heard 8th day creations was a situation where you would send them your money and wait an undisclosed amount of time to hopefully get the decals.

    Are there any better options out there?

    That would be correct, sir. (Sorry.)

    I waited only about 10 days back in late February for mine from 8th Day, then I decided to get black instead of white and waited about five days for that shipment.

    How quickly do you need them?

    They include several sizes, IIRC. Only used four and have a bunch left.

    I first bought white ones, then changed my mind on the color I painted the calipers, so went to black. Got those white ones laying around if anyone wants to know.

    I ship more quickly than 8th Day, too.

    You got any pics of your calipers and the 8th day creation decals? I would love to check them out. I am on the fence on color of the caliper but im thinking a cross between yellow and the brembo gold.

    Re: Where to get V decals for calipers

    A bit hard to see the decal, but here's one pic. They don't lay as flat as I'd like, but had I been more patient, I should've cut them out closer to the outline of the V and had less material to deal with. I might suggest that to you, btw.




    I
    also bought two spray cans of the Camaro ZL1 blue caliper paint but (again) didn't use it. The can says for touch up only, but I think it's because they don't want to advertise aftermarket uses other than for Camaros. I think it's just regular ol' caliper paint. Might have to use the white decals on that paint ... that was my thinking, anyway.
