Default Just painted calipers....what do you think

Well, I decided to paint the brake caliper's while I had the car up on jacks the other day. I got to looking at them and just thought that the caliper's did not look good so I decided to paint them for now tell I can afford to do a big brake upgrade. I am posting some pics to see what you guys and gals think.

They look great. What materials did you use, and what sort of prep work was required?

How did you glue the decal on and doesn't it melt from the heat?
Curious as I am thinking of doing this to my 2003.

I have the pony and the Mustang on my calipers on the fronts only and it looks awesome, I get lots of compliments. Be careful when putting your wheels back on, i've got to repaint my rears from when I went to the track and switches wheels...

i'm the painted caliper hater - they're like fake t*ts - look good at first but then when you realize what they really are you get disapointed
