Refurbished red Alfa brake calipers

The red Alfa brake calipers on my car look like they need a repaint/refurbish as some of the paint is peeling off and the Alfa logo's are disappearing. Has anyone had a go at this or know of a specialist where I could get them done?

Its often just the lacquer that peals off and if its not too bad then you can rub it down and relacquer them.

Autolusso do powder coated ones on an exchange basis.

I repainted mine but it was difficult to get as good a finish as I'd have liked but once behind the wheels you only see the front and top/bottom so it looks fine and better than before

I had mine done at Autolusso last week and they look fab. They'll change the brake fluid and replace any corroded pipes while they're in there.

I did all four of mine with the foliatach stuff and they came up great. I also got some white decals from ebay to finish them off. I also totally refirbished the front Brembo's (very corroded, especially behind the sliders) new seals and a couple of new pistons from
Was well worth the job as the calipers are ten times better now and at around 500 pounds each new a lot cheaper too.
Good Luck

I had the same problem and I did mine while I was changing pads and brake hoses. I cleaned and rubbed them down, used some red calliper paint and new decals from e-bay. I finished with a few coats of 2K lacquer.
