Default Brake caliper coating epoxy

I'm new to this posting . hope it works. I am looking for a brake caliper paint that is in an epoxy kit. I'm looking for corvette racing yellow. A bright yellow color, not pastel. I'm also looking for the decals that say Corvette in a curve that goes on the calipers.

Please any suggestions to [email protected]

Thank you. Mike N.

I used Folia Tec caliper paint on my last two C5s, my 2015 Impala and a 2008 Equinox Sport. It is epoxy based and wears very well. I bought mine off the big auction site.

Powder coating is best. If you don't have a local guy that can do it, there are some forum vendors that sell calipers on a swap out basis on the BST forum.

That being said, I used G2 High Temperature Brake Caliper Paint System, but it is not cheap!

There are some vendors here that offer powder coating, and some even offer, or used to offer exchange, they send you the calipers in your color choice and you send them back your cores after you bolt them on

Thanks Will keep that in mind. I got no where with the G2 site. They don't seem to answer to have Racing Yellow anymore and you can't get through to them on the phone.
Thanks again.

I went with G2 "Red" Spring 2018, BUT I can't find the "Corvette" sticker for the calipers. Must be Hi Temp, not just any vinyl, Help if you can find???

Hi,
I just ordered a G2 kit for my car. I am also looking for the decals. Ebay has some corvette decals …. 4 for $7.00 Not a lot of money. I've sent for them just to see.
They aren't quite the same as what's on my car now.
