stangbanger, very nice and clean. What did you do special for the letters?

Thanks. I just ran some sand paper across the letters to shine them up a little bit

How well is this holding up now that you have some time on it? Would you try anything different?

Yes I would actually. it got pretty chipped when it was at a shop, axle swap and stuff.
I would use an adhesion promoter before the paint, or use pour15 paint.
going to be touching them up and swapping pads in the near future.

I can't wait to do this to mine as they need it. If anyone wants to customize thier calipers with some decals hit me up with a pm as I have a vinyl cutter and can cut almost any design or logo to put on it. You can either just put the decals on it, or use them as masks and paint it on perminatly....

I put the decals on after the paint had cured, figured this way if I change my mind I can always peel them off

Not like anyone will ever look so closely at my calipers that they would tell they were decals anyway

If anyone does go with decals make sure they are high heat vinyl or you will find them curling and peeling off really quick

Yea I use it alot. Especially on older cars I restore at my shop like the odd camaro or impala. It's nice because you can
Paint it with a brush and it goes on like glass.my fox coupe I did te whole undercarriage and subframe connectors then
Added a rubberized coating.

brush or spray?

i wouldnt brush on caliper paint to save my life..it looks like junk(or at least mine did lol)..spraying calipers is SO much easier



ive never used por15(sp?) on calipers..but im sure itd work great. i have used it as he said on older cars etc.

hopefully doing mine soon.. really like how the OP's turned out. esp the blue. wonder what colors would look good with that..lol..want something a lil brighter then the gray met.

great write up!
