Add a blast of color to your stock brake calipers! Get the look of a monster set of brakes or just match the rear calipers to your recent big brake kit install. Caliper painting is an easy way to improve the aesthetics and can be a do-it-yourself job. However, to get a long lasting finish that shines like the factory paint job on the car, we take caliper painting to the next level, offering our Factory Finish Brake Caliper Painting service.

Our painting process is turn-key but we do offer two options for enthusiasts in regards to the labor involved. Both options are painted using the same actual automotive process used to paint a vehicle. We start by completely removing the calipers from the vehicle. Prep is a crucial process and we go the extra step to clean and degrease the caliper prior to painting them. This allows us to get a more detailed finish and a seamless look all the way around the caliper. We paint the calipers with OEM factory paint and include standard finishes. Additionally, we can also specifiy custom paint code finishes such as pearls and metallics for those that want an exact color-match. Additional charges may apply based on the paint colors.

Brake calipers are not comlete without the vehicle logos and we then take the original logo and have a decal made and it is applied to the caliper. We can also provide custom logos for those that want to go the extra mile. Then the entire unit is clear coated and polished to a mirror finish shine. The calipers are then re-installed, torqued to spec and the system is rebled. We will need to add a bottle of brake fluid to system since the calipers are drained when removed. Also, since the calipers are removed from the brake lines, it is a great time to upgrade to stainless steel brake lines, better brake fluid and a set of our low-dust street performance pads.

The GMP Performance Installation Philosophy Upgrading the driving experience... Our focus is installing aftermarket accessories designed to upgrade the driving experience and improve on the durability of vehicles under intensified driving conditions. We want to make sure to offer and install the best products that coincide with dealer warranties protecting both the consumer and dealerships from unnecessary frustrations found with under-engineering and over marketed accessories. At GMP Performance, our installation philosophy is to respect the original manufacturer's design and determine the opportunities for improvement. Upgrading a vehicle with aftermarket products must blend the design philosophies of automobile manufacturers and tuners. Automotive manufacturers such as Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Porsche and VW must balance budgets with engineering desires. Even on the top models, there are often areas for improvement. However, major manufacturers also devote an indefinite amount of resources to product design and testing. Often, aftermarket companies offer a solution that may increase a vehicles performance short term, but lack the resources to thoroughly test the products and vehicles longevity. We have partnered with the industries most distinguished brands and offer their products based on many factors including not only design and performance, but also manufacture and logistic integrity. We focus on appropriate aftermarket products and installs that everyday enthusiasts can enjoy and the new car dealers are comfortable referring clients seeking additional performance options.

Speed is for the track, not the install... Aftermarket products can only perform if they are installed properly. Our installation philosophy encompasses a "No Air Tools" policy combined with a thorough installation process, and unique pay plan for the technicians to encourage thoroughness. - Hand Tools Only: Today's European vehicles have been designed and engineered with a variety of materials. Traditional steel of various qualities along with aluminum, magnesium, , carbon fiber and titanium can be found throughout the chassis and very specific torque specifications and install techniques are required. "Stretch-bolts" are often used for assembly and must be replaced with each removal and even rotated a certain number of degrees for proper installation. In addition to the nature of the techniques, this assembly hardware is typically made from a harder tensile strength than the product itself and it is absolutely critical that the hardware is correctly threaded.

We believe that the best method to install products and hardware is threading the nuts and bolts by hand and then tightening to the manufacturers specifications with a hand-operated digital torque wrenches.
