Has anyone painted R calipers with anything other than the G2 paint. I mean like a professional spray gun job? Or perhaps powder coated them?

I know you don't want to split the halves cuz we can't get the passage seals and tourqe specs, so that's why I'm wondering if you can powder coat them still together.

I think I will buy another set of brembos and have them done either gold or yellow like that VR in the for classifieds. I think either would looook siiick with the Sonic.

Gold might be copying that dude from Seattle though :rolleyes:

You don't need to break them down to powder coat. I've done my Brembos and single piston OEs, with no issues.
So have many others. In fact I haven't heard of any problems.

if you can afford new brembos just to have a pretty new color, then do it. why waste time asking?

Don't hate on me cuz I want my car to look better. You, me and most people on here spend 10 million times the amount of money on other mods for our cars that don't serve much of a purpose, cuz its not like we all track our cars. Just daily or weekend drivers. So spending like 700 on brembos is really not that much. People spend thousands to get a body kit and paint it just to make their R look like a honda. And people spend almost a grand to get freakin carbon fiber engine covers that you dont see. (Sorry george)

Of course I know Ben. Tell him I say hello! Last time I saw him was at a dyno day in November.

The Sonic S60R is getting our own version of "Atacama" leather swap.

Everything I buy has a purpose, be it aesthetic or functional. Spending 700$ to have different color calipers is ridiculous.
