So my car has finally been retired from daily driver status after well over 120,000 miles. I'm doing the maintenance while I have sent away my wheels to Prince for a full refinish and new tires (still waiting on them).

The stock calipers were done professionally after being rebuilt. First off I thought black was what I wanted until I saw blue. I'll be fitting everything within the next week as soon as I have everything in order.

Thought I'd share a few pics in the meantime. :noSMG:

Agree, powder coat looks amazing. A friend of mine has tried various heat resistant paints with little success, but the colour choices are fairly limited. That blue is gorgeous, look forward to seeing it on the car.

Do you know if they sanded down the calipers before they PCed it? Looks so smooth

They were blasted with some kind of process. I didn't ask for a lot of detail.

The clearcoat made them very slick in my hands while installing them back on. So worried I would drop them and it get chipped. I'll have some pics pretty soon. :)

Thanks guys. I just noticed I spelled underway wrong in the title. Must have been the heat.

Wheels look awesome! Did they refinish in Chrome Shadow or a like process. Or is this a single color?
