About two years ago I had a local shop use red G2 epoxy to paint my brake calipers. While the wheels were off they also painted the brake hats in silver epoxy to prevent the dreaded rusting of the hats. They also applied caliper decals. So much for the G2. Two years later it’s peeling off and looks terrible where the bare calipers are exposed. But the hats remain in great condition. One has to conclude that the G2 epoxy paint just can’t endure the conditions thrown at it on the calipers. IMHO it was a waste of money. Next week I’m headed to Bonn, Germany for a week. So I’m taking advantage of the time away to have all six caiipers removed from my Model S and shipped to Armortech Powder Coating in Tampa, Florida to have them powder coated in red and decals applied. If all goes well by the time I return from German the calipers will be reinstalled on my car. Cost? $750 excluding the shipping. The alternatives were: 1) buying a new set of powder coated calipers from Tesla, but the price (over $4,000) was a major barrier, or 2) buying a used set (pretty impossible to find, and if found, two or three times the cost of Armortech’s work). ArmorTech does everything, including cleaning and sandblasting, powder coating, and creation and application of the decals on all 6 calipers (they’ll be a custom bright silver with high heat resistance). I’ll post photos of the work when I return from Germany the week of 12/14. But I have every reason to believe that I’ll end up with powder coated calipers equal to or better than Tesla’s OEM.
