Customised Brembo Calipers

We recently refurbished a set of calipers from an R33 Skyline, for a client with a specific colour scheme in mind. Unfortunately, the materials to complete such a project are not even available in the UK! We therefore imported the powder from our friends across the pond – a special effect two stage burnt metallic orange finish, which explodes into life when the sunlight hits it.

The calipers were stripped, and the parts to be replaced, including inner and outer Brembo seals, were sourced from the original part numbers - as a listing for these did not exist. After an acid bath to remove all grease and coatings from the calipers, the bores were protected and the surface blasted for a clean substrate. 
The powder was shot in two stages with a bake in between at 200c for full curing. We then rebuilt and pressure tested the calipers, before applying custom cut logo decals to finish.
