Hey all,

I didn't see a thread with any pictures of painted calipers yet...So for anyone thinking this might be cool, take a look and see if you like it.

I bought auto caliper paint from G2. You can find it all over the internet. It's great quality; thick, shiny enamel. It was about 30 bucks. I used it on both calipers, and the words on both tires. I chose red, but they sell any color you could want.
(Sorry, my bike's a little dirty :p it's been raining recently and I get lazy)

Here she is:

That looks great, My Subaru has red calipers. What would go good with the green kawi. I don't like gold.

Thanks!
(Yeah, I would like to do the exhaust. Maybe not quite as loud as yours...If that's possible)
......
Green is a toughy. I'd think black or white would work...
It evens it out nicely to paint the tires w/ the same color. Makes it more consistent.

yeah the whole bike looks sick. where'd you get the kawasaki exhaust? or is that just a decal?
Thanks everyone! Glad you like it.

I painted the exhaust with black BBQ paint. I printed the Kawi logo off the internet then used an exacto knife to cut it into a stencil. I then put some spray-on adhesive on the back to keep it stuck to the exhaust while I painted. When I finished, I removed the stencil and replaced the end cap (used rubbing alcohol to remove leftover adhesive). Pretty easy.

My first car will be a 2000 Subaru Legacy AWD baby!!! in white. And then I will get a Black Ninja 250R. So the Ying and Yang are balanced.

No I'm not going R6 on you guys. Family friends are giving me the Subaru for FREE. So buying a truck or taking a FREE car..................All take the FREE car for right now.

I'm hoping that Dodge will come out with a diesel on the 1500, I would defiantly get one.

But then theres the Toyota Tacoma, I hate the look of the Tundra so If they change the Tacoma to look like the tundra that's out of the question. And there is also the Honda Ridgline which I think is cool but can't really tow all that much, but it does have a trunk. But my ULTIMATE truck would be the Dodge Diesel 3500 Dully, but it not really practical when I can't use it to it's FULL potential.

So yes hopefully in a few years I can buy my dream truck. *sigh hopefully*
