I would agree, red is used a lot, something different would make it stand out.

Leave yourself plenty of time, you are going to need to clean the calipers first with brake cleaner and steel brush. Some of the dupont brake kits come with cleaners but may not be enough to clean it proper. It is usually recommended to give 2-3 hours to dry between coats (2 at least) and 1 full day prior to driving car.

Stencils are pretty easy as long as you tape stencil firm, I think the stencils I have seen are about .5 to 1 inch to long for GT brakes, SVT setup should be ok, unless GT has BBK kit (brembo or Baer )


For your white cobra, I have seen the gold brembo color ( like on STi) look really sick, especially with red lettering

Just clean up everything, use brake cleaner and then wipe it all down, let it dry and then hit it with a wire brush drill bit(brake cleaner is flammable so thats why you need to let it dry cuz a spark would be a bad thing.) Then paint it, I would reccomend blue for your vista blue, and then black for the white cobra. If you want to put cobra on it I would just print off the cobra symbol or writing you like the best cut it out of the paper and tape it in place on each calipar once the other paint has dried and spray a few coats. You could pint it on directly with a brush, but you will have to have a steady hand, it will take a lot longer and they will not all look exactly the same. But with my method if you use the same stencil they will be exactly the same.
