Would I just paint the caliper and then just stick the decal on it or would I have to clear coat the decal after installing it?
What did you find that was close to the Ruby Red?

I have that on my car now. The calipers need to be retouched up with paint every year. At least mine do from the 8000 miles a year they get.

Just a near stock 3.7

Off of the rotor attached by the brake line, or actually mounted?

I did mine a few weeks ago. I have put about 1K miles on since then and I see no brake dust yet. The G2 kit is more than up to the task. It has a nice hard finish and I don't expect to have to do anything special to keep them looking good. The key is in the preparation before painting, cleaning with wire brush and brake cleaner. Then a serious masking job.

I didn't see a need to clear coat the decals, they went one easy and are cheap enough that if they do deteriorate I can redo and then hit them with a clear coat.

I got my decals from fuzedmods on ebay. I don't know if road dog got them from the same person or not. Mine are officially licensed by ford and they have like 20 colors you can choose they even have ford colors like grabber blue when you go to order. They're 8.96 for the set of 4 they say they are for 04 mustangs but apparently they will work on a 2014 from what I read. They have really good reviews and there's even a guy that says he just stuck them on and has had them for 6 years and they look like day one. I'll post a link for you guys who want them.

Sorry guys, but yes eBay items and they are really nice. The adhesive is pretty good they stuck to the G2 with no problem. And easy to install. Lots of different colors available so you can contrast what ever paint color you choose. Best part is they are cheap $ so you can get what you think looks good and then get what "She"
thinks looks good and still not be out $20.
