    just for gods sake dont paint the drums any colour other than black

    they will always look chavtastic any other colour

    scream "LOOK IVE GOT DRUMS" not a good look

    black for the win

    actually Id go black for the calipers too

    With the drums, i saw a silver astra the other day with bright red drums & bright red calipers. Fronts looked ok, but the bright red on the drums just looked cack imo.

    I'm also of the view of stuff what others think, generally, and do what you like. I did the drums on the escort a dark blue. They didn't stand out, but it looked alright i guess. Better than rust colour anyhow.

    If you like it, then do it - with any colour imo. I don't like bonnet bras for e.g. but enough folk seem to, so good for them.
