Man those saleens are sweet. In the next year or so I should be sporting the saleen body kit. I'm not much for clones but that has to be the best looking body kits for the stangs. Only reason for getting one is because a forklift decided to park in a dark area and I didn't see it while backing up at 4:30am. Now I have a nice crease down the middle of my tailgate all the way down to the bottom fascia.

Yours look great. But for how long do you have them that way, without any retouch?. I will like to do mine's and probably the brembos (red).
How much did it cost you? Is this some type of special paint?. How many hands of paint?
I was under the impression that powder coat lasts longer?

Too bad that the MGP can not be installed on the Brembos

The body shop at my dealership painted mine.. Had an issue w the factory wheels pitting so it was covered under warranty.. But when done they said prolly $400 roughly.. They supposedly researched it to see what would be the best clear coat for wheels.. I have had them for bout 11 months now and zero touch up..

Why would you want cheap caliper covers to cover over the brembo caliper?

Just was looking for the red color, black brembos are dim. I was thinking that red might look better.

Paint them or powdercoat them! Don't cover a quality brembo caliper with a cheap caliper cover. Those things look like you could buy them at Walmart.
