Looks good! I'm wondering if I should use a filler primer to fill in any pits, then sand to smooth. BTW you might want to look into 2K clear coat for a stronger, chemical resistant clear finish. It has a hardener that gets mixed into the spray can prior to spraying. Other rattle can clears remain fairly soft even after drying.Yes, same here! I found these links on the 370z group and people were going nuts. They sold out of the first few batches after a few tries, I was in on the second round. I had an issue and only received 3 calipers and my powerstop evolution pads. (I called Callahan and they realized the mistake for only sending me 3, so they're sending me another rear.)
The part numbers for the pads show them as $44 for the fronts and about $30 for the rears if you were to buy them a la carte. So this is a great deal on this combo.
Keep in mind, These are aluminum and used so there were dings I did need to sand them down prior to paint. and spray brake cleaner since they were coated in cosmoline type. The surface had pry marks from where the front and rear housings were separated and random knicks here and there. I sanded the bad parts with 300-500 grit. Also ordered decals off of the etsy website from a custom decal guy. Here's my current status:
I've already painted with VHT white primer, VHT yellow engine paint and clearcoated. It required a lot of thin coats to fill in the wrinkle-finish of the caliper but I think they look pretty good. I'm not a good painter by any means. They look really good in person, not "orange peel" that's the actual caliper texture.
