Painted calipers
« on: February 26, 2017, 10:35:23 AM »
Calipers always seem to get nasty and rusty looking over time.  Since the wheels on my Continental are so open and the pockets are gloss black, I painted my calipers to match the wheel pockets.

Nice!  A good-lookin', tasteful mod :thumb:

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!
