Group buy, Sport Caliper Powdercoating

I have had my powdercoating business for over 4 years now, specializing in brake calipers. Mostly corvette calipers, but I have done pretty much any type of caliper out there.

Default Group buy, Sport Caliper Powdercoating

I have had my powdercoating business for over 4 years now, specializing in brake calipers. Mostly corvette calipers, but I have done pretty much any type of caliper out there. Over 1000 sets so far! THEPOWDERCOATER.COM

I need 5 people to commit. Normal price is 350 plus 30 shipping, GB price will be 300 plus 30 shipping. If I get 5 firm commitments, I will purchase a set of core calipers so you can do them on exchange and have no down time. If you prefer to send yours instead, you can do that also. I just need the 5 to commit to justify the cost of the new caliper set.

Any color, any logo, but Akebono seems to be the most popular with the G37/350Z guys.












even GT-R Calipers!

nice, good price for these! If I wasn't planning on getting into powdercoating myself I'd definitely go for it. I am in the process of gathering materials to build my oven right now.

Where are you located at? Cause if there was a way to just bring the car to you, that would make it sweeter.

Do the Sport Pkg brakes with the Nissan logo, is the logo raised on the caliper, or is it just painted/sticker?

I am in Altanta. I do installs for local people at for an additional charge.


The letters aren't raised on our cars, but silk screened on from the factory. My normal lettering method is to paint them on using a vinyl stencil, then clearcoating the entire caliper with powdercoat. The only exception to that is reds and oranges with white or silver lettering get vinyl decals, as the reds bleed through and turn the lettering pink.


Mustang, I'll put whatever logo someone wants on them, regardless of how wrong it is.

Ok just wondering, I would go for a Blue myself with no logo. Just didn't wanna still see 'Nissan' coming through because its part of the caliper.

ATL huh... hmm... Quite a drive from AZ. Damn lol.

it's a core swap...he sends you the calipers, you do the swap in your garage and send him your old calipers back. You won't have much down-time, so it shouldn't be any worse than driving to where he is and doing the pull off, powdercoat, install, and re-bleed at his place.

My problem is when it comes to brakes, I'm not too confident to do it myself, I'd have to wait till they get here and have a shop do them. (No reason to worry... just saying.) My expertise is bolt ons and electronics lol.

brakes aren't too bad once you sit down and do them. The bleeding can be a big PITA, but if you put speed-bleeders on while you are doing it that can become a lot less painful. Just hire a friend with pizza and a six pack to help you out
