Re: Calippers painted!

Why would have i masked them off....it looked like a tinfoil mesh piece of crap and one of the most disappointing things about the stock v6's.

How......im sorry I don't want a random spot in the center to be unpainted and stand out, and it doesn't affect the brake pad at all. It only costed 22$ for 2 cans of the paint and 10 bucks for the decals off ebay

That's a cool idea getting the decals like that I'm going to paint mine this week while it sits not drivable in my garage....it won't have a hood until mine gets done

Re: Calippers painted!

Then they won't be painted and then everybody, except Tippy, will be happy....

They look fine to me.... It is your car Tippy, do what you wish...
