Default Brembo Cross-Drilled and Slotted (black hats) & Black Calipers w. White Decals

I just got these a day ago. I don't know if they're an improvement on stopping, since I'm gonna take it lightly until I break them in. I also got the hats painted so they don't rust, and I painted the calipers black and put white decals on it, with a few coats of high temp clear to finish it off and make it durable. They make a big difference visually, I get a lot of compliments and some people even think I have a big brake upgrade.. I'll have pictures up tomorrow since I'm at work right now, just wanted to share 'cause I'm so happy they turned out so hot!!

Congrats on the purchase.

These are still 1-pc rotors, right? With the center painted black?

Default Nice job!

Looks really nice! It gives the appearance of a BBK without the exspense! I just purchased some drilled / slotted rotors myself that I need to install! Pic's coming soon! Looks really good!-wringo
