My Shaker's a daily driver and the Brembos were getting tired at 3 winters. Had my shop clean them up and hit them with a glossier black than the factory flat. Not sure why pics didn't come out correctly but the mod came out great:

Nice improvement. How many miles you have on that thing now?

Those calipers got that bad after only 30K miles? That doesn't seem right does it?

road salt - notice the corrosion on the caliper bolts and the rusted rotor vanes?

Exactly. Northern Indiana is like Michigan. Trade-off for getting to drive it year round. Painter said that glossy will keep it looking good longer than flat which is great because I really wanted it to pop a little more than factory.

I do not drive in the winter, but after 9 years the clear coat began to go. A little wet sand and re-spray of high temp glass have them looking good again.

The Brembo lettering was a concern for me as well. I followed the instructions a user of a Porsche forum had done. The Porsche driver was able to sand and spray without damage to the lettering. I cleaned the calipers. I used some 1,000 grit sandpaper and lightly wet sanded the calipers. Very carefully on the edges. Cleaned the calipers again. Then re-sprayed with clear. As far as I can tell, the lettering was not effected at all. It turned out nicely.

I think that Dodge updated the 2018+ Black Brembo calipers and made the black finish look more satin/low gloss black with a smoother finish than they did the previous years.
