Hood vents are definitely orange, but looks solid beyond that.

That's red for ya... I really hate how it looks in photos, I think most ppl have no idea how good race red looks in person. The same goes for red in general... I think the OP should take another pic in the shade so we can see how much "red" is on there cuz it does look orange

I'd be real careful doing your calipers with plastidip. I don't that stuff takes heat to well and seems like it would ignite way to easy.

+1. Calipers can heat up and plastidip is not made for heat. It's cool stuff, I used it on my rear valance back when I had my Audi. I love the hood vent contrast, I'm thinking about doing mine black on my Deep Impact blue. Really makes them pop. I like it, not sure if I like the pony or not, I think I need to see it from more angles. Maybe black it out?

Yeah you can get the kit at any auto store, usually comes with a degreaser, tape, mixing stick, brush, and the paint. Or you can get the spray stuff. I had it on one of my previous cars, the paint on stuff had ceramics in it, so you were supposed to drive and brake to heat up the calipers a bit. It seemed like I had to touch them up every year, not a huge deal though, considering I think the kit was only lilke $30 and seemed to be enough for 2 years.
