Hi,

Actually, I powder coated the Calipers on my Esprit myself with a $72 Hot Coat powdercoat system from Eastland (now $99 I see) - http://www.eastwoodco.com/jump.jsp?itemID=412&itemType=PRODUCT&path=1%2C2%2C458%2C459%2C460&KickerID=68&KICKER - It's a pretty good kit yeilding surprisingly good results.

I media blasted the Calipers and powder-coated them, then baked them in my Kitchen Oven for an Hour. Looked great and 5 yrs. later, they are still like new. The whole deal took about 3 Hrs. including reinstallation. BTW, your Calipers look great!...

Happy Motoring!... Jim'99
