aka, you are doing it wrong. you do realize that the stock brembos and 4pots are painted right? it all comes down to the prep. aka, you can make it look great with paint.

It's all in the prep. Powder or paint.

This is what proper prep will get you:



It took me 40 minutes to paint the four and 16 hours to prep them.

Based on the picture, I'm guessing 68Cadillac sanded them down to be completely smooth before painting them. Not something you need to do in order to paint or powdercoat them, but it does make them look that much better, and would take quite a bit of time to do.

What I meant by that was it doesn't hold up as well as powder coat period.

The big problem with paint is that it chips faster and will get damaged by oil/gas and other solvent like materials far faster then powder coating.

Martin at LPC has done a bunch including D moneys calipers
go to www.liquidpowdercoats.com

The correct way to prep is to chemically strip them, then sand blast them like they do at LPC.

are the FHI's in your pic JDM ones? it looks like the subaru word is recessed/raised out of the caliper. and LPC's price is nice i might actually go to them. i was thinking about anodizing them insted but it seems anyone local is limited on colors.

LPC has 5 or 6 colors that have a flat finish that look just like anodized aluminum, and they are developed by the manufacture to look like it. Martin has a few other tricks to make many metallic/pearl finishes look near anodized too.

Tell him dangerousatom from NASIOC sent you.......as im still trying to twist his arm and become a vendor on here.
