2019 Traverse eye candy!

I can't have the same truck as everyone else so I made some upgrades to the looks of the brakes. Ah, much better!

Covers are tacky so I bought a new set of calipers in order to have the time to do it right. Sanded them smooth to remove casting marks and blemishes, cleaned them real good and then four coats of G2 caliper paint. After curing I gave them a coat of Adam's ceramic coating. Did the wheels inside and out at the same time. Now, thy're really easy to keep clean.

I didn't keep track but yes, it did take a lot of time. Was more of a labor of love and something to do in the garage. I traded in my 2017 Camaro SS 1LE for the Traverse because although a really fun car to drive, it wasn't working as a daily driver. So now my new project is to make this Traverse as nice looking as possible... because I'm a gearhead who can't leave anything stock!

I think you have just defined "gearhead" - I have the same affliction

Looks great man, I was thinking red calipers would look awesome. Once mine are due for replacement definitely going to do something like this.
