I passed by there, and from my understanding its just a spray on paint. Dont get me wrong, these guys are great -- I've bought a few sets of tires in the past from them, I just think the job isnt as meticulous as it could be.

I've seen a few cars come and go from there that have some overspray in the wheel wells and other suspension components. I'd rather save my money and paint it myself as I know my prep work would be more in depth.

HOWEVER, Will you inquired about powdercoating -- I wanted to do this as well, despite the cost being a major factor I contacted Fireballcoating.

They sounded legit, pricing was fair (PM me for details). I may be going to them come May/June.

Yeah, it's basic and fast spray, so it's not really for the folks looking for good amount of detail. I painted mine myself with high temp engine paint and even though I took them off and cleaned them a lot, the paint slowly but surely is chipping off as it's impossible to get the old calliper fully clean and the callipers get a lot of interaction with other parts when I frequently swap pads.
Would be interesting to see a true powedercoat on a new clean calliper.
