Which color should i go with?

So I'm about to paint my break calipers and i was wondering what everybody thought about which color i should use. Either the red or blue in the pic.

Also i am going to be painting the mustang logo (writing saying mustang) on it in most likely gloss black, but if I go with the red I might write mustang in blue, and vice versa if I go with the red.

P.S. Sorry the picture is not so great

Either color would look good on your car...I think the blue would look more custom.

Re: Which color should i go with?

Nah it wasnt hard, just time consuming to do it correctly, I used VHT caliper paint which is available at Autozone. But duplicolor makes the same colors and they have the their caliper paint available at bothe Autozone, and Advanced Autoparts.

Make sure that u buy a can of brake cleaner($2), but don't buy the degreaser in the section where all the paint products are its ($7). And then if you have a wire piece drillbit for ur drilll it will be good to use that as well to get any left over dirt off, with a wire brush for the areas that are harder to reaach. Just PM me if you have any other questions and let me know how it goes.

Either way in the end you will be happy, and if not you can always repaint it.

Re: Which color should i go with?

black definitely looks good Its just not as noticeable right off the bat, same goes for silver paint, one of my friends painted his break calipers silver and it looks good it just takes a person who is checking out ur car to notice.

I think painting calipers any color is an improvement over stock.
