Default Brembo logo for rear calipers needed and place needed to rebuild calipers

I have the front caliper logos that are about 5 inches long. What I need is the rear caliper small logo that is , 1.75" to 2" long. I checked with "JVD Graphics" but they can't cut one that small and my contact at Brembo can't get them. Does anyone know where I could get these small vinyl logos from?

When the calipers get back from being refinished I need to find a place that can rebuild the calipers. Does anyone have a recommendation? I live in northern Virginia if that helps.

Don't sticker it, stencil it http://www.eagleday.com/brcapaki.html

That is a good idea, I hadn't thought of that before.

When I read the description about the stencil it talked about doing it the way the factory does it by painting the logo on. Well that isn't true for brembo OEM calipers. They use hi-temp vinyl then spray the clear coat over top to make it smooth. A good idea non-the-less.

Ebay is your friend. Search would have also helped since others have done the same thing.

Ahhh... I was waiting for someone to fall into that trap. I did search and contacted the ebay sellers and they can't cut the vinyl logos 2" long to fit on the factory rear two piston calipers. They said it was too small for them to cut. The smallest they could cut was 3.something inches long.

EDIT: I know someone out there is able to cut the logos the proper size for the factory rear two piston calipers. I'm trying to find that someone who can.

Most brake manufactures probably silk screen the names on but that is not practical for the diy types.

I had Mike the powdercoater do mine, I think they turned out nice.

Nice, how long did the whole process take? 1 week? So you went without brakes for a week?

Yeah, about a week, I was upgrading from non-brembos at the time so it was no big deal. Not exactly ideal for someone already running the brembos though.

Question is, do you have real brembos? It should be painted on already.

Mike stripped the tattered gold paint off, powder coated them red and painted the "Brembos" on in silver.

"Real" brembos aren't painted on. Brembo anodizes the bare metal, then hi-temp paints them, then affixes the hi-temp vinyl logo and then clear coats the caliper.

Will do, they are being refinished in the brembo silver. Still a little while away from being finished though.

Nice. I looked at the stencil set that an earler post recomended and I think I'll get a set as backup in case I can't find a vinyl logo.
