    Hey all,

    New to the forum, ordered white sr+ 3 days ago in vancouver bc. This place is an awesome resource and so glad to join :) first ever nice car I've owned and me and the wife keep looking up mods and stuff we can do and the cars not even here yet.

    Anyways looking to paint the calipers red and probably the stock 18s also hopefully paint black depending on price. Searching the forums seen a few people mention renewz in north van for the caliper paint (400$?) and have sent them an email to ask for a quote for calipers and rim painting?

    Anyone got any advice or tips. Also anyone want to get the same mods and maybe do a group price?

    Thanks

    Renewz was the only place I could find as well. I’m sure there has to be others in Vancouver. Did you ever hear back?

    Yea got quoted 600 for the calipers and 800 for the wheels. Undecided yet if I'll go through with it. They do have awesome reviews.

    I emailed gleamworks and they quoted me $550. It seems like a steep price for such a small job.

    Was the 550 for the calipers only?

    I've seen caliper painting prices up to $900. $550 seems OK if the company is reputable and takes their time with it.

    anywhere a little north or south of $500usd is about right. Doing it yourself is so much cheaper but most don't want to deal with the potential mess when an inexperienced person does it.
