I gave this a shot and I'm pretty happy with the results.
Thanks for the links to the needed materials.
I went with red calipers on my '08, Black Sapphire Metallic IS350. I still need to add the black lexus decals.
I ordered a pair , but I accidently ripped one so I'm waiting on a replacement set. Let me know what you think.

Looking good! Red calipers go well with a black car.

There's not really a spot for rear stickers without them being awkwardly small and out of place....we experimented with them and they didn't look right so our IS350 caliper kits only have the front caliper stickers but they are sized to fit PERFECT with the "L Lexus" emblem and the lexus lettering on each front caliper...

I just did mine today. I did the calipers white (on a white car) with black lexus stickers. (I assume we are all getting the same stickers from a guy in Utah - off of ebay).

My paint job did't start off so great (in the front) because the face of the caliper is very slick (I probably should have sanded it a bit first) but after the third coat it was pretty good.

I didn't have a chance to take pics yet, but will soon and I'll post them.

White Calipers

As I wrote above, I did my calipers last week (following cd's instructions above). I decided on white because I figure I wash my car [at least] once a week, so keeping them clean shouldn't be an issue. Here they are...

I just ordered a kit to do this on my IS350. I have one question for you guys! When I apply the Lexus decal, do I put that on before or after the clear coat seal? Or does the decal just go on the very top of everything?

Before the clear coat so everything is sealed in under clear coat.
