So I'm prepping my calipers for paint and I got a little carried away and polished one up and decided not to paint them after all. Here is a comparison between the stock ugly grey metal and the polished calipers.
It took the better part of a couple of days to get them all nice and shiny, but I think they turned out well and go with my wheels and new R1Concept rotors. Man, my fingers are sore after polishing them by hand, I need a big buffer.......
and the rears...
I'm digging that more then paint now.Didn't know they could look like that. I like it I like it alot
Good work... Why don't they come that way in the first place? Did you clear-coat them afterwards?
Dual Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust System
K&N Series 63 CAI, Ported Throttle Body
Big Bully Catch Can, Diablo Predator
I didn't seal them, I want to see how the polish holds under the heat of the brakes first...
hello wow i love the look of the polished ones ,like the old school vettes. great job and great thinking
hello i think i would seal them it is clear that a lot of work went into getting them to look that good
Man you did a great job, a lot of hard work went into those calipers! Man I love chrome!!
Please repost after some heat is applied! I will admit now that I may steal the idea because I can't find Chrome caliper paint.
Amazed that you envisioned a result that would be worth all the time spent. Much better than I could have imagined.

I'm big enough, I'm fast enough, I'm shiny enough, and doggonit, I've got a freakin' HEMI !
Simply awesome-- they really stand out. A lot work and looks worth the effort.
WOW! Very impressive, who knew the factory calipers were aluminum. Great looking mod you've done for yourself and I'm sure we'll see it duplicated many times over by other owners.
could never have my mag down that long. Wife drives it every day thank on the what to do.
Holy cow those are beautiful !! I never knew they could look like that.
Awesome job !!
