If you've got the time and the place to do it, why not! :)

You must have mastered masking those things, it took me forever to do them. However, 20k miles later mine are still ok...


Here at the shop, we get quite a few people which have poweder coated them and also used FoliaTec (i have a few different cars in mind). Ive asked them about their calipers and their painting procedure and they've all said pretty much the same thing. After a while, the break dust will start getting to the paint, weather its powerder coated or FoliaTec or engine enamle. The engine enamle is the cheapest way to go and it also takes the least amount of time. Plus, i can refresh the paint in about 20 minutes so they Always look nice and shiny. And it only costs like 4 dollars and about 20 minutes of my time.
You really cant beat that...
