looks awesome. on something like that though, if a car was not just a show car and was driven on the street regularly, but only on sunny days, how would you protect the polished finish? i wouldn't want to just put them on and go. i would like to have them coated with something so that cleaning is easy. but with the heat generated or that they may see, what would work well?

you could probably just get some regular old clear coat from a can or something, put a few coats on them. I have friends that have painted there wheels on there cars and then clearcoated them. Just a rattle can job, nothing fancy, and it worked well.

I understand your concerns with that and that is a very valid concern no doubt! The solution is to clear coat the calipers which will take care of the problem you are talking about and make it very easy to clean the calipers off if they get dirty with brake dust which over time if not cleaned I am sure they will.

You could just seal them up and they will be fine. Polished calipers would look over the top fantastic especially against black wheels!

Let me know if you need a price quote...just simply send me a photo of your calipers and I will shoot you back a price quote ASAP.

Thanks

Cool! I very well just might have to pull those now while the car is down for the TT build. I hate the color look and always wanted to go with polished or black.

The clear coat won't be used to protect from the heat, but more so all the brake dust, water, etc that might get on the calipers when driving the car around.

As long as it is metal we will polish it to a Mirror Finish. :)

Thanks
