Why would powdercoated hats get scratched? Calipers and wheels do great powdercoated...hats shouldn't be any different.

Regarding wheels and tires, I'm ready for a change...would always consider offers
I will give you 100 bucks for the wheels.

Mounting and unmounting the wheel causes wear and anodizing makes for a better job in this area. not to say some do this but it is not recomended. The bad thing about trying to match powder-coated colors to anodized colors is it is very hard to get a perfect match.





As you can see some companies anodize the caliper and the hats. Alliance is another company that does anodized hats and calipers, Bullitt has these brakes so might want to check his out! Anywho, did you get my parts in the mail yet?

Ya, I guess the wheels can have an impact on them...but I can't imagine it would be that bad. Not going with a BBK, so no big deal

Ya, I got a real-doll in the mail from you, you wanted me to install a fleshlight with LED landing strip right?

they would only get scratched where the wheel mates, so you wouldn't see it. For an easily driven street car, they would be fine. But if you ever heat up the brakes, the powdercoat on the hats softens and brake dust gets in it and they darken and lose their gloss. Take it on the track, and it just burns off. The only coating I would do is either a spray can of duplicolor 1200 degree ceramic paint (which will also burn off on the track), but does hold up on the street, or actual ceramic coating or anodizing.
