Default Local paint shop in Hampton Roads area.

I have a 07 z51 and was wonder if any of you have gotten custom paint jobs done on various parts. I need to get my fast 102mm painted and my brake calipers to.
I want to paint them both a gloss black.

I'm looking for recommendations and warning about paint shops.

Yes, Paint them yourself. All you need to to is scuff the calipers, clean with paint prep solvent, then you can use caliper paint in a spray can or you can shoot it with a gun. I would go for caliper paint in a spray can.
