new brake setup!
 
Going fbody tonight. Bought red powdercoated calipers. Repainted to the citrus color on my current brakes. Figured the paint would look better on a already powdercoated caliper. Brackets are being worked on now, they are going to be black.

Nice brakes. Those should have no trouble stopping the Alero.

Well right now I have Baer front kit on the car. Lol so I know what to expect. :)

Why are you switching? Are you going for a more OEM look?

Well the baers need rotors soon. So at 200 a pop or so on rotors I didnt really want to spend that much lol

Just curious....but where did you buy those red powder coated calipers and brackets from?

Looks good, have fun :coolio:

Little late but got them installed. Had a issue with leaking at the brake line bolt. Fixed that yesterday. Seems to be holding the fluids in now.


Sadly its a odd color combo (they are brembo brake pads and red in color)

couldnt have had the baer rotors turned?

sleepyalero 07-10-2014 04:49 PM

Probably could have but ive heard its not honestly worth turning rotors

when you think about it... to pay say a dealer to bring your car in, remvoe the brakes, clean and turn rotors and re assembly blah blah blah for a $50 rotor at an $80+ hourly rate... yeah not worth it. but for something that expensive, specialy if you remove the rotor and bring it somowhere and be like "turn plz", not so bad.

i understand you want something new, just puting the information out there for other people reading.

sleepyalero 07-10-2014 08:20 PM

Yeah. They could be turned I know. But I wanted new everything for now. Atleast I have another upgraded kit as back up for something. The baer kit is great but I wanted to try out the fbody as well.

sleepyalero 07-10-2014 10:21 PM

Pads are black


a.graham52 07-10-2014 11:50 PM
