    Caliper Colour?

    It's the age old question, what colour to paint my calipers and drums. I was thinking of black for the drums and gold for the calipers, as I want to hide the fact that I have drums ().

    My astra is in Ultra Blue, anyone got any pictures of their Ultra blue astra with painted calipers for suggestions?

    Thanks!
    Crazy little Scottish lass!

    I'd just paint them a simple colour, not gold though. Red, blue, silver, black seem to be pretty common colours to paint them.

    That's a cracking car by the way, love the wheels on it!!

    Below is a picture of my car last week, you might be right the gold might look a bit over powering.


    I think painting the drums black is a safe bet though....
