thanks! lip style is nice, but the dealer didnt have that one available in the model and color that i wanted.. i guess i was too impatient to wait. lol thought the lip spoiler was a little naked on the truck.. but i think either way they are WAYYYY over priced ):

off topic..
looking at pictures of my car i think i want to paint my calipers... anyone know any good places to order?
it sounds soo girly and clique (sp) but i reallllly wanna do pink accents.. i think it would look good on my car. any ideas where i can get pink caliper paint?

Whoot whoot!!!Thank goodness for another girl all for pink accents!! I would go with the G2 paint I went to their web site and requested a sample a few months ago. I think Im gonna just paint mine black and use pink other places. I hope you do it I cant wait to see them done in pink!!

The G2 is probably the best stuff on the market...it's a little more expensive than a couple of cans of Duplicolor or Krylon but since it's more of an enamel it will last about a gajillion times longer than regular old high heat paint.

thanks for the link! do you have to take them off or can you just tape them off and paint that way? and how long does it take to dry?

how come you didnt end up doing them in pink? i see too many people with red, black, gold, white, etc... so pink isnt something everyone will do. also ordered hot pink engine paint to paint the engine cover this weekend :)

Does krylon work? i didnt think you could use high heat or engine paint because the calipers get WAY hotter than the engine does? i could be wrong?

When I got the pink sample i was sorta disappointed that it was more girly pink than Hot Pink! I also got the hot pink spray for the badges. I just have to get around to taking them off and painting them. Just not enough time. I added hot pink to some of my interior too. If you search the forum someone did the g2 while on the car just a few months ago. There may be a write up on it too. Im so happy some one else thinks hot pink looks great on cars too!!!

Pink calipers FTW! G2's pink is nice but it's kinda bubble gum pink though. Krylon paint will bubble up or flake right off from the heat. The brakes don't get hot enough to affect Duplicolor caliper paint or engine paint but they will chip in six months even if you prime and clearcoat them. G2 stays nice for years. If your interested in stickers for the calipers this guy has the best mazda stickers his name is Matt. They last real well and he gives you an extra one in case you mess up. I have them on my brakes for about seven months and they are still mint. http://sechemedia.ca/shop/index.php...owse&category_id=3&Itemid=2&vmcchk=1&Itemid=2 Btw. That's not my brake in the pic.

wow everyone thanks for the info! i want hottttt pink! lol but that color isnt too bad. i will get the g2 over anything else cuz id rather spend the 40 or so dollars on it once and have it last instead of having to redo them and buy more and more paint. the decals for the calipers look good - ill look into those too :) white or black? i think i looked at a website for g2 paint like ummm g2usa.com or something? maybe they can make custom colors?

so now current projects are:

paint calipers pink
order caliper decals
paint engine cover
paint emblems
order black slotted rotars (sp) - prolly closer to when mine need replacing.
tint tail lights, headlights.
3rd brake light led strip
replace all the exterior lights to LED (looking for some of the part numbers still) and already did interior.
install HID kit - which is currently in my backseat and possibly getting done tomorrow.

then on to more expensive things :)

oh btw how did you add pink to the interior? i was thinking of ways to do it, but not quite sure except messing with replacing the fabric of the seats..
