I didn't want to sand them because if I get tired of the look I can just peel it off and have the factory look

FYI The guy who owns dipyourcar.com says Plasti Dip should NOT be used on calipers because it cannot handle the heat

I've been thinking about doing the back emblem and pony on the front. Looks good.
