    Could anyone recommend a facility or shop to get my brake calipers painted to red from black?

    Anywhere in Northern California would be helpful.

    Also prices quoted would be helpful. :wink:

    Thanks!

    Interested in the stock black color? I want the red and missed them by days. Maybe a trade? :biggrin:

    Edit: Just noticed your car isn't delivered yet. You could call and ask them to drop the red calipers.

    @Gizmotoy - Methinks you misread his post. Look at the words "to" and "from" carefully. :)

    G2 Caliper paint (brushed on) works very well as an expoxy 2-part system and will last about 6 years, high gloss.
    High Temp paint will not last long. Any shop with a lift could clean, then paint your calipers.

    Powder coating is the very best, but requires removing your calipers and replacing seals.
