    Here's another cool option for your Model S.

    This is a (high heat resistant) paint process that takes about 3 days total. We install the factory look "Tesla" emblems as pictured.

    WOW!! Gorgeous IMO!

    What is the cost? Turn-around time? Can I ship you my calipers from the east coast or do u need the car?

    Thanks

    Guess mine are Angel Red then...Wrapped - 30 minutes per corner. All six (6) calipers wrapped very inexpensively.

    Wrapped?! This is news to me that it can be done (but certainly doesn't mean it can't be done!). What material can you use to wrap brake calipers that won't get affected by heat and wear?

    Steve W, even an ICE car can have calipers wrapped, and a Tesla has the coolest calipers of all. My guys did all six (6) calipers in less than an hour with two (2) techs doing the labor. The door pulls took 10 minutes each and the front and back "T"s about 5 minutes. At only a $1.00 per minute, a bargain. See my photo

I as well used a Chrysler color, actually it's from jeep. How do you insert pictures. I would like to share some photos of my paint job!

    Got it... Check this out... It did turn out pretty Good~ Since then I had the TESLA decal back on the Calipers. Very happy with the final results.. If you didn't know you would think it came from TESLA.
