    Powder coating question

    I called this local powder coating business and they said they can't powder coat brembo brakes (my cts-v brakes). They need to be able to get a rebuild kit for them and they said most of the time you can't for brembos. Does this make any sense? Also can you get a rebuild kit for cts-v brakes and where?

    The problem is that all rubber needs to be removed for the coating (parts are baked at 400-500 degrees), and usually at some point one of the pieces of rubber gets ripped when removed.

    I meant more of does it make sense that I can't get a cts-v brake caliper rebuild kit. I understand why you need a rebuild kit. I am also wonder where you get one, I can't find any.

    You can get the kits not an issue worst case be careful removing the dust boots and just replace the main piston seals if you gave me the piston dia.I can let you know the part number for the seals

    Looks like the pistons are 40/44mm two of each size. I found a rebuild kit on this site by a company called zechhausen racing, has anyone bought from them before? Or heard of them?

    Find a better powdercoater if they tell you bullshit like that, ...
    Why in the world would there NOT be any rebuild kits for something like that?!?
    What, ..., are they disposable then? When they get bad is it simply time to throw them away?!?

    Ridiculous, ...

    I thought the exact same thing. But I don't know of a better powder coater in my area in northern virginia. I wouldn't mind mailing them to someone if they are a reputable company either. I am tempted to buy the equipment and do it myself and set up a booth in my basement, it would pay off as I have quite a few parts that need to be powder coated.
