Brake decals

It's time to repaint my brakes and I'm looking for some white brake decals. They used to be all over eBay for under 10 bucks per set, but when I looked yesterday, NOTHING! ARGH! Anybody know what happened? and more importantly, does anyone know where I can get a set for a reasonable price??

I think Porsche must put pressure on large sites every now and then to remove 'fake' branded stuff, eBay got cleared out a while back and even the dodgy sellers on Aliexpress won't show logos in their listings.

Because I might want to buy more myself some time, I'll PM you the ones I know of

Contact BKDecals on Ebay. I was able to get a set of Red Correct Font Porsche decals. I believe 4 were about $6-9. Very good quality and happy with work.

Here is a shot of the decals after painting calipers. BTW, I did not realize that this type of decal, you pull the protective backing off then press on the lettering. I did not know and almost ruined one of the decals as the letters have to be carefully removed.

I noticed that, too. Always a good idea to lay out reference lines with masking tape before application.
