    Refinishing (painting or powder coating) calipers

    I had my calipers powdercoated yellow and added some Brembo decals followed by a clear over coat to seal them on. Few pics, not great photo's but gives you an idea:

    Awesome look. Tough to improve upon the factory appearance job but I think you did it!

    Re: Yellow Calipers

    hehe - looks like the before and after pictures of 1 week of the ab-master..

    'Before' picture is grainy and dull.
    'After' picture is nice and washed and shiny..

    that doesn't diminish the final product - it was just funny.

    Hahaha, Yeah the first picture was crap! I dropped my camera so I have to take all my photos with my phone and it sucks at taking good photos.

    Thanks for the compliments fellas, adds good contrast to the car!

    I love it. What suspension do you have going on? I really like the stance. Looks great.

    This was my first adjustment, I'm in the process of raising the front a touch and the back a lot for a bit of a rake. I'm running K-sport coilovers, just moved from H&R lowering Springs, MM spacers and FE4 shocks.

    Red! Oh so red! I like the yellow on the V2. When someone showed the new red calipers on the V2? Squidge!
