Default F-Sport BLUE Caliper Paint

I have a 2011 IS 350C F Sport Edition. I want to paint my calipers the same color of blue as that used on the F-Sport decals. Anyone know if there is a caliper paint kit out there that already has that color of blue?

I'm thinking about getting this one:
Amazon Amazon
.

But I can't tell from the picture whether that is the same blue...although it looks similar.

Check the brake caliper thread under "Supensions and Brakes"

I remember someone painted theirs (IS350) the same blue color as the F-Sport one not too long ago.

G2 makes custom brake caliper paint kits. It cost a bit more than standard price.

I think it cost 100 bucks for custom color. You have to give them paint code of F-Sport Blue to get close to accurate.

The G2 standard blue color is a bit darker than the F-Sport Blue from what I heard.

Not sure if the Dupli-Color has custom color.

If you use the standard G2 epoxy paint, the color is close to the f-sport blue. If not, you can get it powdercoated. I had a shop powdercoat mine and the blue is close to the f-sport blue color.

Just looking at it you can't really tell that it's any different. Do a search and you can see the G2 blue color on the IS brakes.

I'd just go with a custom G2 kit. The color is pretty close.
