Default Painted Brake Calipers

Anyone know of a shop that will paint brake calipers? I would prefer to have someone who knows what they are doing paint them rather than a DIY process.
I'm in the southwest suburbs near Orland Park but am willing to drive a bit to get the job done right.

This might be a drive for you, but Tim @ The Powder Pro in Woodstock does AMAZING powdercoating work. I've probably had him do close to 100 pieces for me over the years ranging from subframes to wheels to smaller engine and suspension parts.

I've seen several caliper sets he did on various cars and it's mind blowing. Better than the oem finish you'd see on your typical German car or Brembo calipers. Otherwise, you can take it to almost any decent bodyshop and they will mask and spray the calipers without completely disassembling them like you have to for powdercoat. Give Larry @ The AutoArt a call in Glenview and he can hook you up with amazing paint work.

Would Tim @ The Powder Pro disassemble the calipers and reconnect after powdercoating? That might be a lot to ask, but it's out of my depth of knowledge.
