Caliper Powder Coating questions

I am thinking about having my calipers powder coated to match my car. I've got the Brembo brake packages on my 2011. 1) should I paint all 4 calipers or just the front and 2) does anyone know the RAL color code for the Red Candy paint?

do all 4, i doubt you can find candy powdercoat to match perfectly but you never know. When in doubt go a bit darker than factory paint if you cant find a perfect match~

Some say bright red and some say torch red. Hard by looking at these RAL codes to what would look good.

Re: Caliper Powder Coating questions

both will be to bright for your candy red color~ at least to me.

I have 10th anniv cobra calipers (red) can google to see. They are a bit to bright(orange) for my car but .... it works ok

Found a guy in GA that's coating my calipers a crystal red metallic. $300 and he takes care of disassembly of pistons and rebuilds. Pleased with the work I've seen. I'll be posting pics of the change in the near future. Stoked about getting them powdered. I found some powders that had a two step process to make a candy but cost was more than twice. Might on the brakes I upgrade when I go stage 3 but right now want some color to accent my wheels.
