Here are some pics of my painted calipers! I used G2 two stage caliper paint. If I don't like them, I'll repaint them at another time, just figured I'd try something crazy: Orange! The pics make them look red, but they're actually closer to Hemi Orange BTW: I've since cleaned off the paint from the top left caliper....

haha, yeah, I thought so too. the guy on Ebay had a no reserve auction, and the winner would either recieve: orange, black, silver, or red. I lucked out and got the one color I didn't want! I only paid $12 for a $45 paint kit, so I'm not at all upset!

Ahh.... nice.

When will that be?
Within the next 6 days hopefully.

BTW. I would absolutely recommend G2 paint if anyone else is thinking of painting their calipers. This stuff rocks, it takes two coats and it looks/feels proffesional! I'm thinking of doing the intake manifold on my e30 with this stuff (probably not orange though...to muscle car-ish)

From what I've heard you've got a hemi anyways, BMW's been building hemispherical heads for years.

Looking forward to seeing them on the car!

Wow, that actually looks really cool! I'm gonna really consider that...

I can't wait, I've had them sitting next to my bed for the last week and half...

ahhh those little guys look cute...... take pics without the flash on...
Thanks, "cute" and "calipers" are rarely used in the same sentence! The first pic is w/o flash, I live in an attic so no overhead lights, maybe I'll take some more pics downstairs and post em.
