Non standard coloured calipers - what you got??

These were done by BCS, they were completely stripped, refinished, all hardware replaced with new, hardlines were removed (not painted) and we're returned in a bag, but not replaced.

Seems like a decent finish to me! Fair enough, I was going by what I saw on their site. 

Are you happy with them? What was the turn around like? I bought their yellow kit and did it myself but it's started to go a bit gross in places where I didn't manage to do quite a good job as I wanted to. This is on the list of things to do, when I get my wheels redone too.

Here’s my chrome orange calipers

Here are my orange calipers, upgraded with gold flakes. Color is derived from the AMG model calipers.

It bugs me how they paint hard lines in their gallery/vids, but if you say they didnt then that's fine :) they have a special on atm, we'll see how flush I am with cash and maybe do it after a rough winter - if they don't bug me before then!

You need to remove all hard lines for sure...that's at least what I did. There's no way to get a metallic caliper paint DIY-sprayed without having ugly paint runs etc.

Get it done from a professional paint shop and it'll look as beautifully as mine do:

Converted my EX 430 Roadster into a track tool and going to Spa-Francorchamps on March 16th.

Anyone joining?

Hi JPI, do you know what is the colour code on your calipers, and if the paint is heat protected ?

I am considering same mod on my Exige. 

I found a Foliatec kit with RAL 1036 colour but it seems to be darker.

Here is a before / after done with a software to give an idea, with same colour as JPI.

@Nico460 Honestly I would stay far away from any DIY kits like Foliatec stuff etc. for our cars?

 

But nice thread revival!  Why not pop over to the introduction section.   I see a Komotec EX460 roadster on Ohlins...no?

😉
