    thanks

    I was getting ready to say, "I don't like brown calipers," but that was the before photo. LOL

    Fine job ... the paint sure is glossy! Did you use new "C" clips?
    Mine got a little bent when I removed the calipers on mine.

    Anthony, I started around 10am and finished up at around 4pm. It included jacking up all four corners of the car, cleaning and removing calipers, three coats of paint. I also washed the insides of my rims. I waited until this morning to use an exacto knife to clean the paint off of the 'Cobra' letters and make sure the it was dry enough to put the rims back on.

    The kit cost around $18 CDN so, probably ~$12 US? It's not hard to do just time consuming.


    Dan...I used the original 'c' clips cus my brakes only have about 19k on them and are in great shape.
    The calipers actually didn't look that brown, just faded black. Must have been my digicam. lol

    BTW...thanks for the compliments, guys.:beer:
