If you guys remove the casting marks on the calipers before having them painted they look as smooth as glass and a million times better. It makes a HUGE difference in the final appearance.

Is simply spraying or brushing them? Do they remove the caliper from the mount and paint the backside as well?

I called Simply Tire this morning and was able to get in and have my calipers cleaned and painted this afternoon. They did an amazing job! I couldn't be happier with how everything looks now. As soon as this storm passes, I will take some pictures and post them.

I had mine done there today too. Nothing fancy - black, no decals. They did the hubs silver too.

Mine were sanded done smooth. Look fantastic. There is also Tire Connections in Mississauga that uses G2 paint and sands down as well. Both places to very good work.
