Does anyone know of a place that will powder coat calipers? I know I would have to get the seals and what not replaced... So hopefully a place that can do everything and I can just throw the calipers back on.

You could probably look for places that do evo/subaru brembo caliper powdercoating and rebuilding. Problem with those places is they have usually charge you a large amount and then send you calipers they keep in stock and then you send them yours to get a deposit back. That won't really work with your car since they won't have a set of identical calipers in stock. So the question becomes, do you want to be without your car for a while, pay a premium to have them rushed and still not be able to drive your car for at least a few days, or buy a spare set from a junkyard and have those done and then have to resell yours later?

Other than the risk already stated; the risks of it not working properly after the fact.
Ensuring slide points and that everything fits is another matter.... of time.

Besides, our high grit sand cast calipers are far from pretty. Just paint them. The cost to gain is too little and unimportant.
Difference with all those other calipers you refer to are clean casts with little texture, thus the powder comes out nice. They just won't be that pretty when completed.

Not any more different than a very good paint job would do at least.

There are always the paint kits or the G2 kit or if you have the time, you could dremel them to take off the texture but that will take alot of time...
