Default Painted Brake Calipers

Just wanted to show off my new brake calipers. Had the car jacked up anyway swapping out the shocks/struts, so decided to put a coat of paint on them. Pretty happy with how they turned out!

It does really make a big difference. I painted mine shortly after getting my wheels. I did slotted and drill rotors with red stuff pads and sand blasted the braked and did calipers black it made a huge difference.

Only thing is, now my brakes are...groaning? a bit when I stop. It's only at low speeds, sounds like something is vibrating a small amount. Wondering if I reseated the pads differently than before or something, might re-lube the caliper bolts too.

Anyone else have that happen?
