    Painted Calipers + CTS vinyls

    Finally mostly completed the blacked out look on the CTS yesterday. G2 Caliper Kit (black) and red CTS vinyls I found somewhere on the internet.






    Not as cool as Brembos, but way cheaper :P

    Nice job! I'll pass on the sticker though.
    Was it easy to apply the G2 paint?

    Paint is super easy to apply, just takes time. I don't bother to mask anything off, just be careful around the screws / rubber parts. It helps to have another set of hands with the painting, my buddy helped me so we could knock out two at a time. The paint hardens so quickly once you add the chemical to it that it gets a bit harder to paint with the longer you take. 2-3 coats should be good with this stuff, it's super thick and is very durable once it dries. I have tried other kits like the Duplicolor and they just fade and chip off after a while...this stuff you could hit with a wrench and it is fine.
