Brake rotors and painted calipers

After a couple of weeks, here is a picture of my front passenger side wheel with the new Baer Declarotors and Delecapads and painted calipers. So glad to be rid of the stock rusty and crusty rotors!

Nice look, very clean. It's the little things that will make or break the image, good job.

The Baer roots were just over $500 the fronts and rears. Got them from Summit Racing, free shipping.

Any color but black or silver to me looks bad cause it draws attention to are crappy looking brakes, I will say that those red caliber covers look legit there's a guy with a mustang with the covers and crossed drilled rotors and for a while I thought he upgraded his brakes

It's seems that the factory silver on the the calipers doesn't last too long. I think black with my dark exterior went better than silver. I could have dropped about another $450 and gone with powder coated calipers. But the paint was only $24 and I bet I only used 1/3 of the can..

I think the only people that should be able to paint calipers red or yellow are those that own red or yellow mustang.

I think I was misunderstood. I totally agree with you, our cars are the best looking ones. But change the bumpers, spoiler, a little bit of the interior, and pretty much everything below the hood and under the car, and the only thing left on the car that is stock is the frame itself. Just my opinion.
