    turned out not to bad, I originally wanted to powder coat them but that fell through so I bought some paint and did them myself.

    thanks, and thanks again for the stickers.

    I just put the horse stickers on the calipers after I painted the front ford red, the calipers came with the horse showing through the red as bare metal. If you look close you can see where the original horse was on the caliper just above the red ones head, its hardly noticeable from a foot or 2 away which is good. I just used high temp paint but I want to find a high temp clear as well.


    If all goes well I might be able to get those brakes on in a few weeks. But untill then I have to paint the rears to match haha.

    i think im going to take mine off and redo them.. i kept them on last time and painted them with a brush.. im thinking taking them off will yield better results though.
