Caliper color opinions.. Cobra R hood?

I want to paint my brembo calipers on my car and I was just looking for some opinions on what color to do.. Thought about gloss black w GB brembo.. Or vise versa.. Open to other options.. Lemme know what ya guys think.. And also what you guys think of the cervinis Cobra R hood?? I like it better than any of the other cowl hoods out there but worried 3" might be a lil much? Don't guess anyone has one on here? I ran a google image search with very limited results...

Paint them GB with black letters. Will stand out and add a nice contrast to the black rims.

After the paint job, you should post some pictures. I've thought about doing that as well!

Re: Caliper color opinions.. Cobra R hood?

with a Grabber Blue car either leave them black or go blue to match the car~ only two options you really have..... other than perhaps some shade of silver~

Definitely blue all around to contrast the black wheels and stencil black on the brembos
