Looking to have my brake calipers powder coated in the next month or so; anyone know a good place to have these done? Plenty of local places around me that can powder coat but perfer to send calipers to a company that specalises in this type of work.
Thanks

May I suggest a can of brake cleaner, a couple of decent model makers brushes and some halfords caliper paint followed by some eBay vinyl?

I am pretty sure "Iamtheparty" got his done in the last year up in the aberdeen area, might be worth getting in touch with him to see who he used.

good luck and remember the before and after pictures

If you don't mind sending them off Sunnyside Garage did mine before and they looked mint... like brand new....
How much was that Joe? As my calipers have started changing a funny colour :(

Sure did - used LJF coatings in Dyce - Welcome - ljfcoatings.com

Was a cash in hand job (£100) for all calipers, including painting of all the bits that couldn't be coated. I had mine stripped right down, pistons and seals removed and LJF masked it all up.
Only took a few days too.

Considering getting mine re-done this year as they've suffered some staining (really shouldn't have gone for yellow!) from getting the brakes bled and been chipped a few times. Also looking like I may need a new carrier on the rear to solve my long standing knocking under braking.

Will probably go down the Autolusso exchange route if they have any 330's available.
