Good calipers paint but bad quality picture lol

I think you use G2 correct?

Just a word of advice for everyone: apply the paint, then wait till it is dry to touch, apply the decal, and then top it off with 2-3 layers of clear coat. Your calipers and decal will be like new like first day for years. I know at least it is on my car.

yea the pics were low light so came out crappy on the phone. I would let G2 cure for 18 hours or so before applying the decal just to be sure. G2 says 2-3 hours before you can put wheels on but 24 hours for max hardness

I see most ppl are going with the Lexus decals. Why not F Sport? I was considering F sport only until I saw all the pictures here and now I'm thinking the Lexus ones...

F Sport I think goes well if you were using the F Sport Blue color which most arent using as a caliper color IMHO ??

Anyone got some hd photos of these?

How do the rears look with the f sport sticker?

Worried our calipers may be too small for a mod like this
