    Looks good! Love the decal
    I'd like to offer a tip as constructive critisism: If you sand the caliper before painting, it will give a nice smooth appearance.

    My life is a

    did you clearcoat over that sticker-it might not stay on long if not?

    Yes it is clear coated. I bought the kit from G2 paint or something like that. It is guranteed for life. I did the black let it sit overnight to harden, then put the decal on and clearcoated. Now when I wash I just spray it and wipe it off with a soapy sponge and it looks good as new everytime

    Did the same with mine also.
    Clearcoating sure makes it easy to clean.

    How did you go about polishing them? Did you sand them first and then use a buffing wheel? Did you take them off the car? Them things are sweet. Did you clearcoat over them or leave them alone? And how hard are they to keep clean?

    well i polish aluminum that is what i do for a hobby....i have been polishing for at least 4 yrs....i started out with 180 grit, then 220grit, 320grit, 400grit, 600grit, 800grit, 1000grit, and finished off with 1500grit ...remember all of those stages were wet sanded with my car lifted on a jack stand...and me sitting on an egg crate..from around 9:00pm till about 2:00am on every caliper....about 4 and a half hours per caliper..and then hand polish each caliper with aluminum polish such as mother's ...i perfer making my own polish...as u can see it sure as hell works...as far as keeping them clean they usually stay shing for about a month till the next hand polishing!!!..if anyone wants more info on them pm me

    Pretty much the same way steveo... dremeled off all of the ridges, hand sanded with 200, then 600, then 1200, then wet sanded with 2000. Then hand polished with Billet Aluminium polish from Ecklers. Did them with the calipers on the car, sitting on the ground, fending off fire ants
