Looks like Mod season is officially here.

Whats the general feeling on this?
I can paint my Calipers or have them painted for less than $100.00.
Or I can have them Powder-coated for $300.00
Fireball coatings in Erin quoted me $75.00 each.
Mike the powdercoater in the U.S. does an exchange program for $280.00 shipped.

I would like to color match them (Magred II) with black brackets.

Has anyone painted their own? How do they hold up?

My new wheels are ordered so I need to dress up Rotors

What's a good rotor to go with?
Looks like Hawk HPS pads have great reviews.

Any opinions are greatly appreciated.:canada:
 
With paint you can do touch ups when needed , as they do get chipped.
PC is a great finish , but if they chip you SOL touch ups.

If you do the calipers in one color and the brackets in black , it will make the caliper look small . Do both the the caliper and brackets , it will make them look much larger.

Hawk HP or HPS are great pads , but also have a look at EBC .
Made in England and come in Yellow Stuff (cermaic) and Red Stuff a more aggressive compound . I run the Yellow for street and the Red for the track.
 
I had mine recompense in red when I put the drilled and slotted rotors over two years ago. No issues and still look great.

Off topic,Hey Manny, what track do you run on or recommend???

It depends on what your skill set is . If you are just starting out TMP is real easy to learn on . Mosport has a small track that is also a good choice for the beginner . If you are more experienced then the big track at Mosport is a blast , and my personal choice . Other tracks of note :

Calaboggie
Shannonville ( lots of walls )

Hope that helps , now back to our OP's subject :D
 
Thanks for your input guys.
Still on the fence but leaning towards painting if I can get the correct color match.:canada:
 
It is a bit steep but saves you a ton of time and hassle ..Check out there video at the bottom of there page
