Did my front calipers
Nothing spectacular, it didn't take very long either. But I went 1/4ber ricer and painted one of the calipers without taking off the wheel because it was stuck pretty hard, but the other wheel I got off. I thought about doing the rear calipers too but they are kind of small and I wasn't sure if that would be over doing it.

They look great. I think you should do the back also whenever you have the time. I think every one should do this including myself. It's cheap, easy, looks great, and you can't really mess anything up. What more can a Celica owner want. An S2000 antenna throw in for a job well done?

1200*F was the highest I could get, it's the exact same paint Isaac used for his.
