Early interest: Going to refinish Black Stoptech ST60

BIMMERPOST / Classifieds
Asking Price:
USD 1,500.00

Item Interest
Have a spare ST60 that I am going to refinish with the VHT Super hi-temp caliper paint and clear coat. I am also going to use a satin black on the rotor hats, which will allow you track guys to avoid that purple color the anodized hats turn after a track day. Its about 3 hours per caliper and hat, so Ill probably have them turned around in the next week or so. I will update with some pics of the refinished red ST60/40 on my car.

I have received a few PM's and want to mention a couple things here:
The pics in this thread are of the brakes currently on my car. The ST60 being refinished is a spare I have boxed up, and am beginning work on tomorrow.
I will absolutely finish in the color you choose. Feel free to check out VHT's website, I believe they list 8 options in the caliper lineup that are good to 900 degrees Fahrenheit.
If we go that route I would have to insist on a deposit to hold onto just to make sure I dont end up stuck with a pair of calipers done in "real orange" or "bright yellow."
Stoptech logos can be done in any of a million colors. My vinyl guy has a ton of colors of high temperature vinyl.

Sorry to blow up my own post, last thing, I will get some pics of the actual bbk as I go, and will get some measurements in mm of remaining rotor life.

Are you selling calipers here or are you advertising a caliper painting service?

What I am doing is needing to get $1500 for my bbk, and to do so I am going to refinish the calipers and rotor hats. The Stoptech logo rubbed off when I did a cleaning, necessitating a refinish.
*Let me make this clear, I am in no way a business, and have no intention of doing this refinishing to another bbk after doing mine.

Free bump, what kind of paint did you use for this? Biggest pet peeve is the discolored rotor hats on these. Thanks!

Just an FYI on the VHT paint. I took my car out to the track for 3 20 minute sessions in triple digit heat, and the paint AND high temp stickers held up perfectly. If that isn't trial by fire, I do not know what is.
