another painted caliper post

i know there are a 100 post just like this, but i wanted to share my work as well. i would say im 90% happy with the job, if i could have painted it alittle smoother i think it would be better. i might try and sand it down some with like 400 or something to see if i can make it a tad bit nicer. the paint dust wont affect the brakes at all right? i used a brush to do it so i didnt have to mask anything or remove the calipers. here are some before/after shots...

I did a test with smaller toyota stickers I have them for at least 8 months (but I changed them for the TRD logo) with no peeling at all thumbsup the product worked, I also tested several times at the carwash aiming the pressure water direct to them. No problem. Then I tought that a TRD logo would look better, then changed like 4 months ago...
