Re: black calipers?

I always thought red calipers on a black car was ****ing sweet looking. But then I've seen that dupli color blue with black too on a Mach 1 and that was hot.

If you paint them black, you really won't see them at all since your wheels are all black too. If you don't want any attention to your wheels then that's the way to go. I say either way will look good. Anything's better than that stock grey crap.

Re: black calipers?

Well if you don't plan on tinting the tail lights, 3rd brake or side markers I'd definitely paint them red...the color will flow throughout the car when you look at it.

Re: black calipers?

I also say red unless you want to totally murder out the car then go with black.

Yah he said he wanted to keep the tail lights untinted, so red calipers will probably look best.
