Cool Painted and Logo'd My Calipers This Weekend

Well before the supermeet I wanted to add a few final touches to the S and this is the last one (besides a massive detail), I bled and then painted the brakes over the weekend and went with a black/white scheme to keep it clean looking. I am VERY happy with how it came out, G2 FTW. We jacked up the car and put her on stands, then pulled the wheels and bled the brakes. After that we started the grinding to get the casting marks taken care of and then cleaned with cleaner. Two more coats later they were looking great and after she sat for 28 hours (a little cool out so I wanted it to cure longer) I added the logos and put the rims back on

ENJOY!!!

Thanks It took us about 7 hours to go from start to finish, but we were taking out time as we painted them on the car and didn't want it everywhere

Looks really nice

Can't wait to see it at the meet. I am looking to go black with the chrome logos. What type/brand paint did you use? Did you hit it with a clear coat after you put on the logo?
