The website you provided states for any IS350 / GS350 Caliper Decals , " IS350 / GS350 calipers do not allow for rear decals." What does that mean exactly?? They do not make decals for the rear calipers?

Did you do the back calipers as well? Thanks for the pics...im completely sold on the red...does the white decals get dirty from the brake dust?

The back calipers are to small for decals. You can put a tiny F that is about it.
I am painting all four of my calipers red and putting FSport decals only in the front since there is space.

Mask everything else off but the caliper face before you spray because it kind of dulls out the G2 glossy look. You dont need clear coat spray if you arent putting on a decal since G2 dries glossy. Just need the clear coat to seal in a decal.

No they dont. That pic was after a good track session, lotta dust on wheels as you can see but the decals looked fine

So these are just pics of sprayed calipers plus the decals correct? (and not plastic covers over them right?).

What do you think looks good on a black/red 350?

Im considering red calipers plus either white or black decals. Can't decide which colour decal. I think white might stand out nicely on the black exterior. Any suggestions?

Wow, these look nice. The brakes look very much similar if not the same like the 2nd generation IS.

the front brakes on the 350 are the same. I painted the brakes on both my 2IS and 3IS. 3IS rear brakes are bigger than 2IS

I'm planning on getting my calipers finally painted yay !! I'll be getting them done in Red and will use the white Lexus stickers 😊

The Red calipers I think stands out so much more especially behind our OEM wheels !
