    Question VXR Caliper graphics

    Anyone know if it will be possible to get hold of the VXR graphics stuck on VXR calipers? I am considering paining mine in blue (like the VXR ones) and thought this graphic would finish off the look perfectly.

    Any gen? Thanks.

    I saw this on the Monaro VXR, the graphics were like those on Porsche brakes.

    Also Astra VXRs will apparently have arden blue calipers - not 100% sure about graphics on the Astra though.

    I imagine they'd be painted on to withstand the heat?

    This is what was eluding too -

    how you gonna put it on. - Performance calipers all have a flatish surface that is large enough to host a logo - brembo, AP, Tarox, Hi-spec etc, MOV-IT

    the standard vx units do not.

    Hmmmmm

    I wonder if it would be possible to machine up a kind of plate that fits to the caliper and bare a logo of some sort?

    Not sure their would be anywhere suitable to affix it to though!
