Does anyone know where I can take my brake calipers to get repainted. I purchased a set of used BBK calipers and they need to be repainted

if i lived in houston still i would gladly do them for you.
if you have a spare oven and a spare 160 bucks you could powder coat them your self

if you clean the calipers with brake cleaner really well and you make sure that it all evaporates prior to painting the kit from duplicolor (autozone and oriely carry this one) sticks really well and holds up well to the brake temps.

I think its pretty good considering a can is fairly cheap. just a few bucks. I just removed my calipers cleaned them really good and applied red spray. Came out nice and non ricey lookin
