I may try him again and give him more specific measurements with detailed pictures of a measuring tape next to the calipers. I want them to be the exact size so I can place them over the existing ones.
I will do up a image with the measurements tomorrow and give this one a try then.

He is still selling the stickers. He has updated listings. I have his email if you want it.

Just wanted to bump an old thread and say THANK YOU to the guy who found this Humbrol #54 color. Just ordered a can to touch up my recently purchased Brembo calipers before installation.

I don't recommend using this paint. It doesn't match. It only looks like that when it's freshly applied but quickly discolors when it sees heat.

I used gold caliper paint and red decals to dress up my 06+ non-Brembo calipers.

If the calipers get banged up, it may be better to scuff up the caliper and respray with gold and have Brembo decals made. I had my decals made at a local mall for like $10.

I recently bought "Testors" flat brass enamel paint at a hobby store. It's a near exact match. A good alternative to Humbrol 54. I applied a light coat then sprayed clear coat over it. How it will hold up during use is yet to be seen.

From my searching VHT Engine Metallic Burnt Copper is probably the closest you will get without custom mixing in a high temp paint option. It is more oranger than the orginal color and needs a clear coat to match the gloss.

I was going to say this as well. I've been eyeing that color to paint my Infiniti Silver Akebonos. I was hoping the color was a close match to my Le Mans Sunset which itself is very close to the "used" Brembo looking color The good news is the VHT is high temp engine paint so it should work as caliper paint.

Be sure to bake it before it comes into contact with brake fluid otherwise it will soften and peel off immediately.
