the shop sand down the caliper n spray a hi-temp base coat before the top coat. the thin sticker logo was then put on. a final coat of clear lacquer for added shine & protection. its been a few months now, paint work still good other then abit dirty from brake dust but once hose down with brake cleaner, it shines again..

I did this last spring and im just keeping an eye on the paint to see how the salt and harsh wisconsin winter is gonna do to my paint job, they still look good as far as I can tell but I am gonna take them off and clean them up really good in spring and carfully check out how the paint held up.
Has anyone used body filler on their wheels to fix a curbing?
