    I'm planning on getting my calipers done but not sure whether to have them painted or powder coated.
    • Painting will be slightly cheaper but may not last as long. There's less risk to affect the brakes.
    • Powder coating is slightly more expensive but supposedly more durable. Also it may be riskier to the overall brake system. since the brakes have to be taken entirely apart and put back together.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks guys!
