Since I had the calipers off of the car I opted for Duplicolor spray.

the logos are silver instead of white.

You ever see what happens to the Gold after a couple track events?

to the OP: looks great. I think that I will do mine in black, no sticker though.

That looks really nice. Where do you get this Duplicolor spray, where did you get the silver Brembo tags and do you use any kind of clearcoat?

I got the Decals from xenonmods.com

The paint was off the shelf at Advanced Autoparts. no clear coat is needed.

just be careful with your wheel cleaner, some cleaners will start to take off the paint and cause fading.

Yes, the same thing that happens to red or any other colour. They're coated with brake dust.

I took my brakes off, sanded, and painted them, then painted the logo on. It isn't perfect by any means but it turned out pretty good for a DIY.
The picture was before I finished touching it up and baking them. I will update once I put them on the car.

Can you do this to stock non-Brembo calipers?

I recently bought new pads and rotors and ss lines, so removing the calipers to clean and paint makes a lot of sense for me. Of course if this can't be done to stock, then please do let me know...

Yeah, you can do this to stock, I just wouldn't put the Brembo stickers on it, cuz thats just not right.

I am going to be doing this to my stockers hopefully this winter.

I would like to paint my stock non-brembo calipers too, but I don't want to take them off. The OP didn't take his off, so would there be any reason I would need to for non-brembo calipers? Will I be able to do just as good of a job as if I took them off? I want to paint them black, by the way, to make them less noticable.
