Nice... but red with white letters would have been better... ;)

Looks great! Great DIY.

JDMUSCLE 03-29-09 06:01 PM

Thanks for the compliments guys, I got the decals from a local shop here that would make any size or any color within 5 minutes!!

Hey Tee, nice job with your calipers man!! I was thinking of painting black as well.... then I saw a AMG S-Class drive next to me with the silver calipers with black lettering and that caliper stood out so much while driving.... I made my mind up right there and then to paint mine silver!!

I am running 235 35 19 on the front, previously I had 245 45 and they rubbed to much.... I had no choice but to downsize to accommodate the wheels!!
