Powder coat calipers?

I'm planning to have a detailing studio powder coat the calipers on ceramic brakes on a new, all satin black GT R, so it's all black. Any concerns about coating the calipers?

It's a pain. You have to push out the pistons and remove the rubber seals as they can't handle the heat from baking the powder. It's similar to a total brake caliper rebuild. It would be a lot easier to pay it professionally painted although it would be more susceptible to chemicals, brake cleaners, etc..

Thanks....I figured it would be a time-consuming effort, and I'm paying for a thorough job. But from what you're saying, it's doable, and not a bad idea. I'll have to stick up some photos when it's done.

weve done more than a few sets. Shouldnt be a problem at all. Make sure to have the shop do a complete break down remove all seals and fittings and properly mask off all inlets/outlets to prevent any material getting into the caliper i.e. sand from sandblasting (prep) and powder from the coating process as this could potentially cause issues.

You can see some of our work on our Instagram SDAutoSalon

for the logos etc we usually cut out decals on vinyl from 3M or Avery Dennison for the best results. good luck and posts pictures of your completed job
