Yesterday while sitting at a stop light this custom yellow Toyota Supra pulls up next to me complete with a G2 decal and yellow calipers peeking out from behind it’s chrome wheels… Sweet! I looked up to give the driver a nod of appreciation when the light turned green and she sped off… Leaving me to stare at her tail lights and think just how far girl racers have come.
It used to be the only women you would see in a car magazine were draped across the hood… Now entire features are dedicated to them. I get hundreds of e-mails and phone calls every month regarding specific application procedures, custom colors and overall application techniques and quite a few come from women. And they aren’t just asking about Pink & Purple Brake Caliper paint either!
Everywhere you look girl racer clubs are forming and forums are sprouting up… Girl racers are definitely carving out a spot in the traditionally male dominated industry. So don’t be surprised if the next time you are owned at a stop light if the face smiling back at you from the rear view is a woman’s…
Take it from me… Despite what you’ve been told. It would appear that girls really can drive.
As always if you have any questions or comments I’m always here to answer them, and I would love to see your results… You can submit installation pics to G2 here to be featured…
What are you waiting for??? Go paint your calipers already!
Apparently I am not the only one who thinks that Brian Torok’s 2004 Lexus IS300 with Red G2 brake caliper paint is picture perfect!
The Passionate Pursuit, a website dedicated to covering the most up-to-date and interesting news and views on Lexus, Toyota’s luxury car marque recently published this “An Argument for Painted Brake Calipers” on their blog stating:
“Painted brake calipers are a nice enough touch, but they take on new significance when you see a photo like this” – referring to the photo seen below.
I couldn’t agree more!
We would love to feature your ride too!
