Powder Coated Altima SER Calipers

I powder coat alot of calipers. These are some Altima SER calipers that I recently powder coated with a base of red powder, applied the mylar decals, and then applied a clear topcoat to protect the decals/calipers. I am still working on the hardware....powder coating it all satin black with a bare metal clear coat for the ultimate protection from brake fluid etc. I am about to do another set in a deep switch back blue. Lmk what you guys think.

What they looked like when i got them:

In this pic it shows how the decal looks like it is raised rather than just flat by applying an additional coat of clear powder

You're right. In this pic, it totally looks 3-dimensional. Nice job.

Lol, they come with matching 350Z rear calipers, so you'll have to also upgrade to 2006-2008 350Z rear rotors and remove or trim the dust shield. Thanks for the feedback

30mm Z32's and the 2006+ 350Z calipers are a good combination. You do not need to use the master cylinder from the 300ZX to use the Z32 calipers.

Sure....

Finished and ready to ship!
Media blasted and Satin Clear powder coat applied for protection. Member opted for the black out option on the caliper pistons on both the Z32 as well as the 350Z rears. I think I am really liking the natural finish look.

Full set: Difference in color is the fact only a clear was used, and the front calipers are aluminum, rears are iron. If a colored powder was used, there would be no difference in color shades....

You can search around different forums, and or places like ebay. I have about 3 sets of the fronts but no rears. The rears are the same as any 3rd gen Altima or 7th gen Maxima. You could also use rears from the 350Z, but you would also need the rear rotors from the 350Z/G35.
