Anyone have a close-up pic of painted calipers. I'm going for black. Should flow pretty well with the rest of the car. Rotors and pads are on its way, so I'd probably like to do this while I'm in there changing everything. Thanks guys!

High temp aluminum spray paint with high temp clear coat.
Very easy. I haven't put very many miles on them yet so I don't really know how well they will hold up

if your rotors are fine its easy to get them off my back rotors were crap and had a big lip i needed to grind off to get them out but i was getting slotted and x drilled so it didn't matter much

Its really not worth it to remove the caliper unless you are doing other brake work.

Unless you are going to get them powdercoated as well! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
