Default Powder Coating Brake Calipers

How can I get my gray brake calipers powder coated crystal red metallic to match the color of my C7, does powder coating look good forever, and what will it cost? Thanks!

Interesting. I know them. They are around the block from my office. Good people too. So they are stocking calipers for advance exchange? That is a great idea on their part! Did their finished product retain the Corvette logo on the calipers?

He, thepowdercoater.com, is in Georgia.

And yes the Corvette logo is retained:

With the C6, Mike gave the option of sending you back your own calipers once done or he would send a set he had from a previous core return. I believe with the C7 he does not have cores to exchange so you would have to wait to get your own back. He did my C6 and they came out great and durable. Do a search in the C6 forum, you will find many satisfied customers. Good luck.

I approve of Mike too. He powder coated the calipers on my Camaro SS & did a great job. I did core exchange.

In doing this how hard is it to bleed the brakes on a corvette or does the dealer need to do it. I've had plenty of experience bleeding brakes but mostly on motorcycles.

Pretty straight forward bleeding process. No need to take to GM... ( At least on the C6)..
