I'm Powdercoating My Brakes Yo

I decided that since I'm getting rims I want to make my brakes look better. So today I just did the rear drums. I will get around to doing the front calipers later on.

First I sand blasted the drums


then I plugged/taped off the holes and applied powder


and here is the finished product after baking the powder. It is actually black chrome color

I will update the thread after I do the calipers and actually have the new rims on



new pics..







Update

results after metallic clear top coat...

yes the front calipers are more work. you have to remove all of the rubber pieces or the heat will destroy them. That is why I did the drums first because they are the easiest lol. I will update the thread with the process once i do it.
