Painting Calipers - color?

I think one of the things that looks cool and is a cheap/easy mod is painting the brake calipers. I don't know what color would look good with my pacific green 96 stang. I've seen some with red that seem like too much red, and some with red that seem fine.

What color do you guys think would look best?

That does look really great! I might just go ahead and do red.

I've heard that white would be pretty hard to keep clean. I wonder if yellow would be the same? Yellow, however, does seem like it would be a really cool color on the calipers.

Just wondering if anyone with a sonic blue mustang has used the blue caliper paint from AM, I'm curious how close the colors are!

If sonic blue is lighter than vista blue then I would say they are pretty close cause I have vista blue and the calipers and alittle bit lighter
