caliper color??

Ive been sucked into plasti dipping my wheels. Everything Ive seen plasti dipped so far looks awesome. So now that ill have black on black I cant decide on a caliper color. Red is obviously one of the most popular but Im kinda tired of seeing it. Suggestions?

Green would actually look pretty awesome. A green just like the color of the car
