    It's all good. When you get my age, you'll STILL have the enthusiasm of a 25-year-old for cars that we all share. That's why we're all here.

    I wonder how many people are going to think you tried to match that blue with the Stealth Gray color...

    GOLD!
    I agree! Gold would really stand out especially with your dark wheels that are never on the car

    Re: Few new pics of painted calipers

    Stealth Gray and yellow looks pretty sweet IMO.





    And this gives a little bit of a taste of what gold would look like on Stealth Gray. Obviously, real "Brembo Gold" would be a stronger effect.

    Mn800r and Mn800r like this.

    G2's gold is flashier than I thought. I want flashy.

    I just ordered some G2 two-part epoxy caliper paint thru eBay. About $40 shipped to you. They have yellow plus a bunch of other colors. 8th Day Creation has the V emblems (see link above). Go on youtube and you'll see a bunch of vids showing other people prepping and painting their calipers. Some are good, some not so much.


    EDIT: Oops ... didn't realize you didn't have a V. Disregard the 8th Day Creation link.

    How dare you use V2 parts! You V1 people should stay with V1 parts and never enjoy anything!
