    My $6, spur of the moment mod

    Got bored, didn't feel like installing the tranny cooler, so I spent 4 hours doing this instead:





    Sucks that I just finished it and I have to wait until morning to see what it looks like.

    Ha, I was actually in the process of fixing it, I was wondering what was going on.

    Thanks for the compliment, still have to find some lettering for them though.

    Thanks, Y2K, I'll make sure to check them out.

    *edit* They only have chrome letter kits for the calipers, you know of any place I can find black letter kits?

    I just got some 1200 degree duplicolor from O Reileys. Don't remember the brand. Only cost 5.89 though. It's pretty time consuming because I did 6 light coats on each caliper, waiting appx. 15-20 minutes between each coat, AND I only have 2 jack stands and no ramp.

    Here's a pic from ls1howto of how the other part looks painted a different color. Not sure how it would look all the same color though. Try it out and post pics!

    Yes. But sprayed from a distance to keep down dripping and such. Just needs a lot of coats that way.
