Prep for paint i hit it good with a wire wheel on my grinder.
Took off the pad outer bracket, did the piston section still attached.

The only had silver, black or red in they're "caliper" paint.
So i got this wheel paint, and a clear. 8)

Put it together, remounted (which was kindof a PITA with the ebrake cable right in front of the bottom hole.


I'm happy with how it turned out!!

that looks fricken sweet dalamar. I dunno if I ever discussed my final decision with ya. I'm going to end up getting a set of brembo's... it's a lot of money, but I like spending it on my car... so it's justifiable right. You had already sent me a pic of those rear rotors those are sweet. What size is that rotor, i guess it's still a 10.5 or whatever the stock size is

that looks a lot like how i painted my stock calipers, but i used black and red... not to hijack ur thread or anything

as soon as i sell my wheels i will be upgrading the brakes... the rears might stay stock for a little while though, cause the fronts are gonna drain my pocket book :hammer:

Thanks TXcobra



Thanks Thorco.
Those brakes will be sweet. It makes the car feel awsome, my friend AZRoush has them on his car.
It's his favorite upgrade, and he has a ton done to the car.

your brakes look nice too. Good idea on the 2 tone 'wink'

guess i must have just skimmed the whole thing, cause i didn't even realize that you had cleared them too. I had never even thought of such an idea...

i'm really torn here. I originally wanted to just do a cobra front 13" upgrade... then when they were out of stock everywhere got to looking at other options and decided I could swing the brembo kit. now that the cobra calipers are back in stock I just don't know which setup i want. Either way i've decided on brembo slotted rotors front and back... but can't decide on which calipers to get. I could get the cobras and put a lil money else where... or i could just get the brembos which are simply :pimp2:

sooo torn :'(
