Enzo's Painted Calipers And A Few Shots...

I was able to paint the calipers today and take a few pics....

The caliper paint is from VHT and its called Burnt Copper Metallic. I looked all over and could not find Burnt orange.
This was the closest I could find. I still have to get Vigg to make me the Vinyl BMW letters for the face of the caliper.

I would just like to say to all of you on this forum, thank you! Without all of you, my car would be stock!

Hope you enjoy!!

Thank you Bro!!

I did it in my driveway and the cost was $35.00

2 cans of the Burnt Copper, 1 can Clear Gloss, and 1 can of brake clean with a wire brush.
Even tho my car has 2,200 miles on it I still wanted to make sure the calipers were clean so the Burnt Copper would stick well.

Your car is turning out to be a neck breaker! I think mine is the same color as yours.

Thank you, It was very easy! The hardest part is taping and that only took 5 minutes a rotor.
I didn't take the caliper off, just taped and used canvas drop clothes to cover the car.
Let me know if you want to do it. We can coordinate a Sunday morning and I'll hook it up for you.

Thanks Brother, that means a lot coming from the O.G!

I think the color might be the same. I call mine the East coast KL 2.0, LOL!

Looks great man... nice color choice behind the chrome wheels! Good JOB!!
We have done many caliper paintings (red, black, silver, blue, yellow) never a burnt copper... looks really nice. I'm still debating on what color to do on my new F10.

Thanks Bro. I was going to do Red or Burnt Copper. I really like the way this came out.

Boom! Enzo you keep nailing it. Red calipers would have been 'safe' cos it's the traditional look for high value sports cars. But man I the burnt copper. You're breaking with tradition and it's working. It's a classy style of sport. Onya Bud. Can't wait to see what's next
