Shops to paint calipers for a decent price NVA?

Like the title says, does anyone know any shops around that will paint calipers for a decent price? I was quoted $500 for a shop in woodbridge, VA area where I live....doesn't seem crazy expensive but just wondering if anyone has gotten a better deal? I'm looking at doing Porche Acid Green but not set on any color..

Appreciate any help!

500 is crazy expensive

My local powdercoater I use charges $50/EA. Of course you need to remove the pistons and seals prior to PC and then replace after...

I wanted to have a drain grate (about 24"x18"x2") on my patio PC'd and every quote I got was around 200 for that. I thought it was too much money and wound up taking a wire wheel to it and painting it. Took about 3 hours but it's held up pretty well.

OP - are you expecting them to take the calipers off and re install? Or just paint?

Yea, I had sent some inquiries about PC mine and was $95/caliper but I would have to bring them removed. Did the $500 include removal/install?
