I don't know what the big deal is about powder coating Vette calipers -- it isn't magic, and anybody who does PC in general can certainly do Vette calipers.

I used to do some powder coating, mostly on motorcycle and other odd parts. I've forgotten a lot of it, but I wouldn't PC anything that had any plastic or rubber parts still present. Critical holes are plugged off.

Aside from that it isn't a big deal. I was going to do my own calipers a few years ago, but the thought of all the work involved of removing and stripping the calipers gave me a headache, so I made some Margaritas and called it a day.

I had my buddy paint them last year, no regrets.

Man as easy as rebuilding calipers is with new seals, while they’re off I’d go ahead and rebuild them. Not worth taking a chance with leaking brake fluid all over your wheels and ruining the finish. Stuff’s nasty for sure. And that’s not to mention the safety portion of a brake fluid leak! If you don’t want to rebuild them just use the G2 kit and paint. Mine turned out super nice!

Nobodies going to agree with this next paragraph.......................

My Nashville Corvette friend Kelly............told me has had several C6 Z06/Grandsport
calipers Powder Coated LEAVING the Seals and Pistons Installed....
without Issue......

Ordering 2" High Temp Tape to cover Seals and Pistons

So far Ive removed the bleeders, the crossover tube and starting to take out those TORX headed Pin ???

I was going to plug bleeders, cross over holes and hose block threads with metric bolts.......(if I can find)
