my calipers were dull and faded so I decided it was time for a makeover.

Cool ! How much did they charge , if you don’t mind me asking . ?
Also, does anyone know what an anodized “paintover” calipers cost typically runs ? I heard it’s not for the faint of heart :cautious:

it cost me $600 because I had received a quote from them last year when that was still the price, I think it’s a little bit higher now. these guys do really clean customizations though, I took my STi headlights to them 6-7 years ago for a custom housing paint job. highly recommend checking their work on instagram @oneightynyc

I'm going to be doing mine on my Range Rover soon but I'm powder coating and using that Porsche green/yellow color...This might look good on a white GT??

Color is such a subjective thing, it’s tough to respond ..but IMO, that color of caliper would look better as a contrasting accent against a darker color car ( black , dark blue , grey ) but not white. Or, red for that matter .. again, aesthetics are all subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder ..?

That is true..It also depends on the rest the vehicle and the wheel color I suppose....J

Gorgeous! I had an appointment for Thursday to get the dealer in Boston to re-paint mine. They sub it out - $2k!!!!
I’m in Newport RI and my GT is also white and an MC but a convertible. I want to do yellow but I have standard wheels and not sure the yellow will pop like it does against your black wheels. Thoughts?

it’s really all subjective and personal preference. I personally love the yellow on a white GT, I do like red but I feel like it’s pretty standard and not nearly as eye catching to me. yellow probably wouldn’t stand out as much against lighter colored wheels but in my personal opinion it’d still look good.

Nice, I went from blue calipers to modena yellow myself recently
Love the wheels but how the hell do you avoid curb rash my friend!
I've never curbed a rim in my 15 years of driving but holy hell I wouldn't trust myself with those wheels.

Thanks.

I have curbed them before, but not often. Twice in 6 years lol. The fronts are built different and dont protrude like the rears do. When they get messed up I just get them redone or change the color. Gold or bronze on the face may be next.
