Ordering Brembo Brake kit Where do I get them painted orange?

Hey I am thinking about ordering the Brembo GT kit and I can't find orange anywhere. Does anyone know who can professionally paint them?

Thanks,
Michael

Mike,

We did a set of custom GT3RS Orange Brembo BBK for a customer last year and we also teamed up with Vorsteiner for the custom CF caliper plates.

Those look sweet.

For the OP, Brembo can pretty much paint them what ever color you want. You just have to pay for it through your sales shop.

is there any company that concentrates on caliper painting and finishing? I would want to use someone who specializes in it because its very easy for the paint to burn and change color...

Brake calipers use a special high-temp paint that resists peeling, chipping, and road contaminates. Regular automotive grade paint will not hold up as long. (requiring removal and re-spray)

Make sure you go through Brembo to make sure it gets done right.

If not, your orange calipers will look like crap in six months to a year...

I would like a nice gunmetal finish on my Stoptechs..

Vorsteiner offers this option with their edition of the Brembo GT Kit. If you already have the kit, I recommend going to a shop that specializes in brake refinishing as the paint has to withstand heat exposure.

Just get it done by Brembo themselves will take about 2 weeks longer, but theirs added piece of mind its done right.

The ones IND has done including mine are Brembo factory paint
