a can of caliper paint is only like 12 bucks! plus i'm not too keen on sticking on something that could come off and get lodged. i'm sure it would probably just get busted up by the rim, but still.

$200 for some covers? I saw these years ago and if they were half the price maybe. I want to create a stainless disc for the rear drums. Either one that fitted over the lugs or one that would mount directly to the drum. So it would rotate just like a real disc.

I'd put the cashola towards a bbk= M-2300-SVTF5 = SVT 300mm rotors/ bigger calipers & lines. Bigger brakes look & work better than covers. All bolt on. Hit up Steve @ Toulsey Ford.

my gpa has them on his Mustang. not my cup of tea but they're not as bad as people make them out to be either (besides price). you can get them in whatever color you want and have whatever you want engraved in them (you can get FOCUS in the 2008-2011 font if you want i'm sure). true they do have the shape of a fixed caliper so people are automatically gonna think Brembo wanna-be, but its not like they have "Brembo" plastered on there with the fake bleeder screw & whatnot. if you want them, buy them. wouldnt look right to me considering we have drums in the back. if your wheels wont fit on with the covers installed they'll provide spacers for you.

and LOL at the drum cover.
