Here was my red ones on my old sixxer, I put it on a lift, pull of tires, bushed all the calipers with a wire brush, then sprayed brake cleaner in them, wiped them down, sprayed on 3 coats of true caliper paint( engine block paint will work too ) something that can stand those temps and the didn't crack for the 1 1/2 after I painted then

Hi, i have done the caliper's on my car. It has been about 2 years, since originally did them. Red is not a color for me. Hate it. But to each it own.My caliper are a lighter shade of blue. Mostly it is your personal preference on the color you chose.

If you can afford it you should go with caliper covers, last a long time, easy installation and look sweet. You can get them in just about any color you want.

I painted mine with kit you get at autozone and went back and put high temp clear coat. This was 7 months ago and they still look good.
