    My calipers - what colour !

    If the weather is half secent over the weekend im going to paint my front and rear calipers on the coupe but im unsure what colour lol its sunrise orange as some of you may know. What colour would yous all reccomend? My girl thinks i should do them same colour as paintwork and im thinking just black. My m8 said to me do them ford st orange lol if i was to do them same as car would i just get paint mixed up with the code? Also would it take the heat from brakes?

    Your opinions welcome, cheers
    This is vauxhall country...on a quiet night you can hear the fords rust!!!!!
