Base 986 Caliper Reconditioning (and Painting)

Any recommendations for base 986 caliper reconditioning (seals, etc.)? I'd also like them painted if possible (I realize they sell kits but would prefer the powder-coating).

Thanks in advance for your insight.

I used the G2 epoxy based caliper paint kit about 8 years ago to

paint my calipers. It has stood the test of time and still looks great. Added the vinyl porsche decals over it afterwards too. It does take some time to get the calipers really clean and a few coats of paint on them but is fairly economical (~$40) too.
