HeHeHe you had your chance at NEBF. JK

Gold on Gold looks great Nice job!!
Hey I offered! Lol...shoot...it took Gumball three meets before he got the nerve to clear his corners...it will be Oct 07 before he paints the calipers...

Again...great job on the gold there...I'm really liking the match up with the car. Did you want decals for the calipers? They're only $10 delivered... you can get any saying you want...any color you want...a set of 15 all together...

Here is a link for Caliper Decals.

Don't use high-temp engine paint if you ever plan to use brake parts cleaning solvent on your brakes. It'll take engine paint right off.

Use caliper paint. It'* designed to withstand brake cleaners.

I think the gold looks good. Nice contrast to the chromies. Let'* see some daylight pics from a little farther back!

I used the G2 BRAKE Caliper Paint System also it came in a paint can with a brush to apply it to the calipers so i didn't have to take my calipers off which was nice. I like the decal idea might have to look into that, I am going out side this afternoon and going to take some more pics will post them later today

To clarify the above, a chlorinated brake cleaner will possibly strip engine paint, however in my experience chlorinated or not chlorintated does not strip it.

Be warned about the possibility though.
