: Front and rear calipers painted...

Still waiting for the rear brake carriers, which will be here next Thursday or Friday. I'll document the rear brakes since it's a bit more complicated than the fronts.

But as promised, here are the pictures...

Cool, Hack, I like the new .sig too. Now you need to upgrade the wife's brakes, and paint her calipers blue! :D

Here's a wider shot. You should be able to make out the red calipers fairly easily on this shot.

Those are beautiful. Great choice on color!

It will look fantastic once you get the back rotors done.

HACK, would you consider painting the red Ci with blue calipers?

Dammit Hack!

I bought that paint like a month and a half ago, with the plan of using it on the Nissan SE-R Spec-V that I had on order, which was supposed to arrive the week after I bought the paint. Since that deal fell through, I got my E46 a week ago, and now it's just way too cold to think about sitting on a stool and painting outside.

Then again, I bet it's probably just as cold where you are. Man, I just don't have that kind of determination! Ah well, at least my car is Titanium so it won't look too much like a knock-off idea.

LOL, I should take a pic of my car with the black steel wheels on it right now - so stylish! :p
