Wow, that looks amazing! What kind of paint did you use? Is that acrylic or spray paint? Where can that paint be found?

Why are you getting new rims? I love the ones that you already have.

Only thing to watch out for is that the pads still slide on the sliders. Some have painted them too much and now the sliders bind up.

You did a great job. If my GXP didnt come that way allready I would do that. I am going to paint my rusted rotors though.

Nice touch with the bonneville on the brakes....I would have wrote BREMBO on mine......

I picked up a caliper paint kit. However being 97...also have drums. There'* plenty of paint to do the drums as well.

Another alternative is to get 500F degree engine paint in a spray can. That'* how I quickly and easily painted up my drums.
