Wow! That is awesome and the Calipers look professionally done that's why ask. I've never seen painted ones turn out that good.

When I took the calipers apart and painted them with out the pads for some reason it didn't look right. I then took them apart again and painted the pads. There new pads so when I replace them next year they will be due for a touch up anyways I'm sure

Was it hard taking everything apart and putting it back together, love the look and would like to do the same to mine. I'm just afraid of jacking something up.

Not to hard, as long as you take your time you should be fine. Better to have someone who has done it befor to help you

Re: Attiention to detail

they have it at most auto parts stores. they have the spray can and a kind that you brush on. I used the spray. just make sure that they are clean before applying the paint. i had to scrub mine pretty vigorously, but it was worth it
