Re: My new to me JGC Altitude.

I have actually seen some powder coated ones that look very good. But of course, it's a matter of personal preference. The only option that's left is to get the real deal, should you have about 3K to spare lol

Yeap. I do have 3k but is going for lifetime warranty that is more important now.

Covers are like 150 now, so will get a set and see how they look. If I don't like them, then I will just paint the calipers and throw away the cover or sale them, don't mind losing 150.

Re: My new to me JGC Altitude.

Sounds good. I was actually feeling tempted to get the covers until I saw my neighbor's Altitude. Plus, I'm not sure that it's too safe to put a cover on the calipers but that's just me.

Wondering how much will be just 4 aftermarket/oem calipers that can fit on the current rotors.
Painting them doesn't look cheap to me. I paint mine and they look good. I just followed the instructions from here. HOW TO: Paint Your Calipers

Seems good.
Will try paint them first then.
