I too did white, but I would like to see how his came out compared to mine. Mine are flat white though, not gloss.

This is my car: http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=768354

What type of painting process used? I.e. powder coating vs spray vs brush?
Did you have to disassemble the brake calibers? Can someone explain the steps in little detail?

Hi StatenEye,
could you please post pic of your car from side to see combination of white car and blue calipers. I can not decide between blue and red color.

Thanks

Are you guys removing the calipers from the brake lines to prep, paint, reinstall and subsequently bleed the brakes?
