Ive seen a good number of self painted calibers in my two days at NOPI nationals and night at Hot Import Nights. My absolute conviction on self painting is that you cannot possibly get the gloss and shine found on the pic above (beautiful stoptechs!) in ANY color. They're still red, but look far less appealing than what I would ever have in mind for my own calipers. Stoptech's calipers, along with ferrari and porsche, look the absolute best.
