Thumbs up Brembo rebuild/repaint service (2018 recommendations)

My poor Brembos have turned JDM pink. I would like to get them repainted, but don't really want to do it myself. I saw many older threads where people were sending them out to "Centric", the parent company of StopTech. I don't know that I necessarily need them rebuilt, however, if the service is all inclusive and was a rebuild and paint, I guess I would just go for it as they are the original calipers and I can't see it hurting to do so.
Does anyone know if they still offer this service, or any other companies that do? I cannot find contact info on Google for them or any information about them doing this service other than on their own Centric brakes. Any info would be very helpful. Thanks!

I just called them a month or 2 ago. They still peform the service. Years ago our local EvO shop (Road Race) would be the intermediary, but i understand RRE no longer offers that service through Centric.

I would call Centric direct & ask them who their participating vendors are: (626) 961-5775

Let us know if you end up going through Centric & how the whole process went. I may do the same if you find their service is sound

Thanks,

I would recommend having the calipers powder coated by Detective Coating. If down time is an issue, you can opt to have a fresh set shipped to you, and then you send your calipers back for a core refund.

Just get a remanufactured set through CarID. I've done it twice. They're genuine Brembo castings, not some knockoff junk. It'll cost u under $300 once you send your cores back. It's a no brainer.

As I was jut curious about this, having never heard that they did this, I checked their site. Do they have any of this info listed anywhere, I couldn't find anything about this.
