Josh, I really like the look of those.
Outstanding custom paint work as usual.
Although, the price is "starting to get up there".

I purchased a set for my 2009 Corvette, they look great.........
As for the cost, treat at your Corvette as you would your favorite gal, what you spend on them is well worth it.

Very nice!

My custom wheels are pretty tight on the front. Not much room between the wheel and calipers. How thick are these?

Ordered a set in AO right before Christmas, got them at sale price plus
a little more for powder coating. Like the fact of being able to take on
and off. Have not received them yet but customer service has been great!
Thanks Josh

We don't make these and don't set the price, we're trying to bring out a good product at the best price we can. I believe these retail for $399.95/set in body colors.

They are thin, how much room do you have? I'll check and see if they'll fit for you.

I can fit my pinky finger in between them. I'll get a photo.

I wonder if you have closer up photos?

With the LG wheels up front I have very little caliper clearance. Still need to know thickness added.

These add 1/16". You mean towards the wheel, right?

I got a set of these brake caliper covers from Josh just before Christmas. I priced them everywhere -- they're made by GMP and lots of Vette websites have them. RPI has the best price (don't forget the available 10% discount) and RPI's shipping costs are 50% less than most places. Josh, if you could get with GMP and have them make these caliper covers available in more colors (like all the great stuff on your website) with the C6 Corvette logo you'd sell a ton of 'em. With regard to wheel clearance, since the clamp fits on the caliper bridge it shouldn't be a problem. I have factory 18"/19" forged chrome and there was no problem.

Josh -

Great idea, as your paint work is flawless! With the temperature of the brakes and what not, will this effect the paint in anyway? I know they're just covers, not actual calipers.

These use a U-shaped clip that attaches to the caliper and a set screw to tightly secure. Removing the wheel is 90% of the work.

Thanks! The heat is not enough on the cover to worry about. Some of our under hood covers get hotter.
