    Interesting! After adding couple more coats of paint it looks really nice now. I'll be getting the new caiper piston boots today. I'll try to replace it today, if time allows.

    May post some pictures of the new boots.

    Thanks.

    Update!

    Got the GTO front caliper boots in today. Had some time so was able to replace boots / seals on both the calipers. Was pretty easy and it took about 30 minutes total.

    See pictures in these following links.

    Looks good man. Real good. I thought that the paint on the boots was going to be a problem for ya, I forgot you were getting the replacement boots. Looks like a factory job!

    Re: Brake upgrade

    Got the black slotted rotors in yesterday and here are the pictures. You may see a darker paint by slotted areas that's because I painted the slotts again, just in case the manufacture's paints come off.

    The calipers has new seal boots, was very easy to replace.
