I think I bought my decals off bombgrafx but apparently the stuff off motogfx is easier to work with.

The painted yellow looks nice imo

Can you post more pictures? I am thinking about painting yellow also with a 350 BBK on my 250.

Thanks.

To the people who painted their calipers blue - did you guys get a custom color code match for F-Sport Blue, or just go with the standard blue they (G2) offer? Also, any pics of the rear stock IS350 calipers being painted blue?

I just painted my calipers using the g2 paint system. it is very easy to apply and takes no time at all. the only time consuming part is masking the areas where you dont want paint to hit.

just make sure your first coat is very thin. when you go to do the 2nd coat it leaves it really even........

Here are my pics, hope you like them. this is what i did.....i wanted to do this all at once so i ordered and did the below. to bad i have a is250 because the brakes are different, i think the 350 brakes are nicer but oh well

ordered the g2 kit from ebay.... $37
ordered lexus brake decals.....(not worth the price) got 2 fronts and 2 rears (rears you can't use on the 250..its the round ones..

when it all arrive...
i put the 4 corners on jack stands...
spayed the brake cleaner from the kit...
started masking all 4 corners...(tip: i masked alot but when it came to painting i peeled some of the tape off because it would've blocked some areas.

mix paint (just read the box)
apply thin coat (just apply so that you dont see the original metal
it says wait 15mins between coats but by the time you finished the 4th brake its way past 15mins so you can start over again with the 2nd coat.
on the second coat what i did is tried to go over what i did on the first coat but mainly i concentrated on the visible areas....(make sure to check the bottom of the caliper because you may have some drips spots)

after all that let it dry for 2 hrs before putting on the wheels then another 24hrs before driving as per the box (but you can do whatever you likeeee)

sorry i was kinda lazy to type this out so i just typed what came to mind...

ask questions if you must.
