Default Rear calipers painted & vinyl lettering applied...check!

Just thought I'd share what I just finished out in the garage. I thought the lettering came out good, and the angle of application makes it look different. Enjoy!






Oh, and if you're curious what I used...it was just Duplicolor black caliper paint in the can and high temp clear over everything after the vinyl was applied.

i like the black but it looks like you messed up the application of the decal... I would take it off.

^Yeah, those factory rotors are rough. But I plan to replace them with new PowerSlot rotors soon, and they will come painted.

Well, I've had the rear PowerSlot rotors and new OEM calipers with Axxis pads installed for a little while now. Here is a quick pic for the Mistress sitting in the garage, notice the gold perch of the BC Racing coilover peeking out there :
