Default Just painted my calipers!

Hey everyone I just painted my calipers with the G2 Brake system and it looks great. It takes about 24 hours to dry, but afterwards it looks wonderful. Plus the shine is very glossy and I'm diggin it. I may have to try out their engine paint now..

im sorry , but i think caliper painting is one of the most rediculous mods. 'hey, lets make it look like i have aftermarket calipers' to each his own, and if you like it, great, but i think its about as cool as type r stickers.

Sounds great. What color did you go with?

I did mine in black with Folia Tec.

There were a few reasons I painted the calipers.

The stock caliper was ugly.

I plan on upgrading to the 4 pot Subaru brakes and this will kinda match.

And I thought it would look cool.

I went with purple because it matches my car. I had to get this done before I put my car in the shop which is set for August 9.

hmmm... allright, lemme see your crusty, rusty stock calipers after a year of driving. whether they are a color or black, painting your calipers is DEFINATELY worth the time to do it
