Nice work and great colour choice! It's been said plenty of times but too bad most BMW calipers suffer in the looks department even though they are very effective for what they were designed for.

When I saw the thread title, I was thinking to myself "no!" But then I saw the picture and realized you painted the calipers to match the rivets, which IMO is very tasteful. Looks great

Looks tidy. How long would you say it took overall. Did 1 can do all 4 calipers?
