Just finished up my calipers yesterday!...I went with red calipers and black brackets, and I think they turned out really nice! I completely disassembled the calipers then taped off the piston and bleeder, shot them with three coats each, then let em' sit overnight, and installed in the morning...Final result...

Car on lift, calipers off



Pinching off lines with rags and vice grips...



Shooting red...



Shooting black...



Baking...



Let sit overnight...



Final product...

If anyone has any specific questions on how this was done, ask away! :)

Idk.. the black bracket doesn't stand out too much and the red kind of hides it because its so bright. Its definitely unique tho! Good job and the quality looks awesome! Is that your shop or did you take it somewhere to paint them
