anybody have any good source for getting brake calipers painted?

as the title state:
anybody have any good source for getting brake calipers painted?
if so how much? I do not want to spend 1k or something. I would like professional job. If i can't find anyone to do it, I might just have to do it myself. I want to try the pro(s) first. Please advise.

I've been considering painting my calipers as well... For those of you who have done it: what color did you go with? Have any pics that you can share?

Hey Raja, I just upgraded to a BBK. So I have my stock painted calipers removed and they're just sitting in my garage. If you're interested I can let them go for cheap.

That looks awesome. I've got a white E92 on black wheels as well; the red calipers look great with that combination. I was also wondering what yellow would look like...

I am just beginning to contemplate this mod, not sure what the time frame is for me. I will keep you posted if I decide to pick up your calipers for a good deal.

Well I went to art school...so yes I can paint your calipers. I actually bought a bunch of painting supplies last week so I can paint anything of reasonable size now (not a whole car).

I used the g2 paint system
Damn easy, and looks great
Only tip is don't mix the paint in one go
I mixed half, did the fronts
Then mixed the rest for the rears
I also got an audi sticker logo, and then clear coated the calipers
Looks great

I've used it before and it looked good 3 years after I painted it

For those that brushed the G2 paint on, how is the finish? Any up close pics?

Considering doing this with my calipers but I'm much better with an aerosol can (considering just putting the paint in a can) than a paint brush.
