Opinion - Worked on my calipers the last two days...

Spent most of yesterday evening and a couple of hours today painting my front calipers.

Would like to get your opinion on them... I'm considering doing the rears as well.

What do you guys think?

It's VHT engine paint (Burnt Copper), picked it up at Advanced Auto along with caliper cleaner and clear.

Didn't think I would like it when I saw the caliper pics while you were painting, but the finished product looks really good, especially behind the black wheels.

You've read my mind, I want to get a set of DBA or EBC rotors and new pads. Maybe Christmas.

BTW, I have done the rear. Will post a pic soon.

Here's an okay pic of the right rear...

I think I did a better job applying clear on the rear set.
