Default STi Pink Powder Coating...? Lets see your POWDER COATED Calipers!

I figure with my new build, Im gunna want to go a lil crazier... and looking to powder coat my Front KSPORT 8 Pot Calipers and Rear Brembo 2 Pots.
What do guys/gals think about bringing back the STi pink. Too Bright? Its probably better than my faded anodized orange KSPORTS.. and my unmatched Brembo gold rears..
Just think GC8 w/ 09' Rally Bluew / a hint of pearl, 18x8 Enkei RPF1 Golds, and BAM!!! STI PINK powder coated calipers....??
Im stuck on colors and want to stay rooted. Any other color really would just look like bad shoes on a good outfit.. any suggestions??.. maybe ill go photoshop a bit..
ANYONE know a good powder coat shop in NY area..?

Just so you know man, if you have your calipers powder coated you are going to have to get them REBUILT because you cannot powder coat anything with rubber / seals as it will ruin them.

So I hope you're doing this to some bad calipers you planned on getting rebuilt anyway.

Really?

Pink would look horrible. Black would look best. Red would look passable.

im all for the pink, but pink on blue is dumb...pink on black, white, sliver is fine

if you are going with the blue body color and want a punchy caliper color then go with yellow, orange, gold, white, silver,...or even lime green


it's all just color study

Nope, these are GREAT calipers, just need a face lift... Although, it has been hell trying to find a complete 8 piston rebuild kit.. I guess im gunna have to buy every seal individually, as they are all different sizes.
Lord...! Please don't make me spray these!! I hope I find the seals!

Keep the opinions coming guys! Whether sweet or sour.. i want to hear em!

Funny, being a graphic design major.. I have seen a lot of hot pink and bright blue thrown around... . especially for overseas projects.. I would definitely stand out in the snow!

I have had my front Stoptech and rear Brembo calipers powder coated black with a white logo. I used...

http://www.thepowdercoater.com/

He did a fantastic job and the price was good.

I would not worry about getting new seals. He removed mine prior to baking and reinstalled them afterwards. He also sealed off all openings prior to coating. The calipers now look and function great.

Look through here:

There are some neat colors and even some transparent coats on a chrome base that look really sweet!
