Does anybody offer pink calipers? My wife is thinking some pink calipers would look great on her Thunder Gray V Sedan.

Comments?

It would be a custom job - you will have to take them off and have someone paint them, resulting in several weeks of downtime while you ship them out; unless you can find/trust someone locally to powder coat them for you.

Bound to be some silver ones out there from a wrecking yard a could get and have done.

Powder coat would better.

Get the G2 caliper paint and go to a sticker shop to make stencils of the V badge.

Get two pinks and one black and you will be set, you can even paint them on the car and they will even out not looking like you painted them...

Plenty of videos on how its done on you tube...

Pink calipers + TG car = No go IMO. I think she's looking for creative ways to keep you out of it!

If you did a dark metallic pink... maybe?

Pink! How about red? I just checked a Rotora application guide, and they've got a whole bunch of colors, but I didn't see pink.... You can also get carbon ceramic brakes or a down payment on a new car. (I'm still saving up, will be for a while I'm afraid...)

I think pink sounds interesting. I would like to see that. You should try G2 caliper paint. For less than $40 you can try one color and if you don't like it try another. I went with Red and like it a lot after 2 months.

Hello,

We offer caliper refinishing. Give us a call if you are interested in this service that we offer. Typically this takes just a few days. We have track tested this finish and it will not discolor, unlike the factory finish when tracked heavily.

I dunno...sounds like a interesting combo - TG and pink calipers. Would certainly look better than the pink Mary Kay CTS running around here locally. Seems the pink Mustangs (for breast cancer) have the dark gray stripe down the side as well.

So might actually look good.

We offer G2 Calipers paint. It's a DIY brush on paint that pretty easy to do. Feel free to PM me if you're interested and I can get you the pink caliper paint.

Or you could just get a can of brake caliper paint and pop the wheels off, tape the outside areas like behind the caliper, the rotor, etc and spray it yourself, I did this with my G8 and looked good and held up well. I did mine dark navy blue on a white car, looked good, car had a blue interior.

Photoshop this before your hit the powder coater. That's all I can suggest. ;)

He did my calipers ZR1 blue and they look amazing.

Hell, I don't know. I just can't get my head around pink on TG paint. It may look awesome I just can't "see" it.

It's 4:00am and I couldn't sleep so I decided to do a search for pink calipers on Google Images and came up with several examples of people who thought pink would look good on their calipers. Guess what, it doesn't look as good as other colors. I would go with a bright red.

The yellow ones look good to me. If she wants pink - whatever.

I say tell her to paint her nails pink and leave the calipers alone. For resale value alone...
