    Painted Calipers for T/A

    Lets see them!

    I want to paint mine and put the T/A stickers on but it seems like they would melt off after a while. Do they hold up well, and where do I get them.(Good ones)

    And yes I know my car is 4 different colors.........

    Nah, they don't melt off. You paint the caliper first, then apply the decals, and finish by clearcoating over it all. The high-temp clear coat is enough protection that the decals won't be harmed. These decals can be found everywhere...most of the online stores that sell Fbody vinyl designs/decals will have them. Ebay will have them as well.

    I would consider painting the car one color first.

    Did the clear coat attack the sticker? I don't want to piss around with stickers pealing off.

    Any one have any close up pics?

    I actually painted mine onto the caliper. I bought a vinyl sticker for my rear bumper and just traced it onto something and cut it out.




    I know, I know, there's a cobra on the centercap. It came with the car but I've upgraded
