    You have got to be kidding. Why don't you color it with a Sharpie?

    Try it. If you want to ano it that badly, give it a try and let us know how it goes back on. I'm interested to see how the piston and seals look like from inside. Pistons are inserted from here with seals. Removng the nut will probably distroy seals though - so be sure to have spare seals on hand. I'm curious how it comes apart.

    Since anodizing involves submerging the part in an acid bath, no I don't think that would work

    that blt threads inward not outward. if you start to loosen it it will go in not out.

    If it threads inward is it some type of adjsustment for the pad? Why would they put a torx head on it? it cant be just for decoration can it?

    do NOT remove that piece. that is how the caliper is assembled (not a pad adjuster) from the factory and is not meant to be taken apart. there are no seal kits available if you do open the caliper.
