I ended up buying heat resistant vinyl and cutting out the old school Brembo logos. I applied them to each caliper and then clear coated over for good measure.

The goal was to look like the Brembo calipers on my old GSXR, I think it came out pretty good

As soon as I bed the pads and really bake that clearcoat using the heat of the brakes...

I had taken the truck for a spin last week and was not happy with the way the brakes felt. I did a full bleed of all corners of the system and the pedal feels much better. Another test drive will reveal whether or not it needs more bleeding.

This whole process has revealed other things I need to fix. One is the intake scoop in the grill has begun to crack, another is the source of my AC system not working, and the final is that my front bumper is all rusted underneath (aftermarket replacement). While everything is apart, I will probably replace the radiator fans and wire up a fan controller of some sort.

While I get those, more important things done, I figured I would have some fun with the 3D printer. So, I went ahead and printed this to replace the Lexus logo in the IS300 wheel I got. This was the second test piece, just to verify fitment. I will make the final one in black once my new roll of black filament arrives.
