So, I've been thinking about painting my callipers for some time now. I think either black or red would be cool (to match the red leather inside). I'm leaning more towards black though. What do you guys think? Any suggestions?

Here's the car

I think silver - its often hard to get a thick enough coat to make other colours look good but silver looks good any way you put it on - looks classier i think :)

Mine have recently been re-done in red, which go well with my black car (and the red leather interior). Have a look at my pics and you'll see the red easily through the wheels. I think black could look good on your car, but red will always be more noticeable of course. Are yours 17" Teledials or 16" ones?

Did mine black as the pad's are black,and so makes it look more like there supposed to be that way.Red would have been nice on a black car,but then i would have had to paint the pad's aswell.

Hello all...

Did you do then yourself? I noticed the white script type 'Alfa Romeo', how did you keep that so white? Surely not paint around it?

Do you guys stick the script on top or lacquer over the sticker?

Mine were done professionally and have the script stuck straight on with no layer of lacquer.

I used black engine lacqure to paint the calipers, then stuck on the script and used a 2k clear coat to seal them in and keep them clean.
