I notice a lot of people want to take their cars to dealerships and stuff to get their calipers painted. If anybody lives in the Yardley PA area or close to it i'd be willing to paint calipers with G2 paint for you at a nominal charge (like 15-20 bucks). All you have to do is buy the paint and set up a time when you want your calipers done. Keep in mind I can't do 1000 people so if anybody else would like to contribute to this post here because I think it would be a good idea. I'll post pics of some jobs I've done in the past I've used G2 on a couple accords, my IS and about 3 or 4 VW Jettas.

(Note: I do need jack-stands if you want all 4 painted at once, otherwise you would have to settle for 1 side at a time as I have 2 floor jacks)

how long does the entire process take? do you have a garage to use for the winter? and one other question..can you do the decals as well (provided with paint of course).

thanks!

after you paint the caliper it takes 2 hours for them to dry before you can put the wheels back on--which means having jackstands lets me do all 4 at once. After the two hours and you reinstall the wheels supposedly you have to wait 24 hours to drive. I've found you can wait about 12-14 hours depending on the weather. No i do not have a garage.

yes i can do the decals as well, anybody could really they are stickers. I have my calipers on my black onyx painted red with white lexus stickers. You can buy them from the .net store for like 8.50 i believe.

Painting the calipers is an easy mod...but time consuming if you want to do it to look right. Lots of info in the inside&out forum on how to do this mod the best.
