Painted Calipers

Finally got my calipers back from the shop and had a chance to put the fronts on. Very pleased with how they turned out!

I love the blue and the paint looks PERFECT! My one pet peeve, what fastaction said below! I did that when I painted mine and it made them look a tad bit cleaner. Still though, bad ass!

Thanks, guys. Yeah I forgot to mention they are actually powder coated and not painted. I agree though, sanding them some would have made them look a little cleaner.

Yeah they chemically stripped the paint then sand blasted them. They did a coat of metallic silver then a color called candy blue on top of that.

I would have avoided the "BMW" or go with a smaller font. Love the blue though!

Those look great! So many questions....Where did you have them done? How much did they charge you? Do you know what color selection they carry, I am looking for red? What color is your car?

I have done that ony S4 and I will say its not worth the cost. I rather just rattle can calipers way less expensive. Don't get me wrong they look great powder coated but too much money.
