How would I go about preparing my Boxster calipers to be powdercoated? Where can I get a stencil to redo the Porsche logo? Also, the flat black finish, is it anondized on there?

you might want to concider Foliatec paint. it goes on very think and smooth. if you still end up with not being perfectly happy with the result, do a wetsand on it. and yes, i do believe your black is an anodized finish

there must be a hole behind the pistong point the piston at the floor and put compressed air in the hole and it will pop out http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: Powdercoating Brembos (mash169)

Thanks for the help. I bought some of the G2 caliper paint from Tirerack. Anyone know how to remove the4 metal posts that keep the pads in place?

no, but make sure you lightly sand the caliper to have an easier/more durable finished product
