    What colour to paint my calipers?

    Hey guys I am thinking of painting my calipers on the Coupe at some point in the near future and I was thinking of what potential colours. I've still got some silver paint left from when I painted my old Astra's calipers. Any way heres a picture of the car any suggestions welcome.



    Not really the best picture to use but haven't got any pure side on pics at the moment. The options I have come up with so far are:

    Black
    Silver
    Red
    White
    Yellow
    Carbon Black Astra Coupe Turbo

    Oo that sounds nice, should look really good. Painting calipers is such a nice little mod to do and can make a really nice difference when looking at it.

    I would have voted but u aint got no blue option....the best stuff i've found to do calipers with is carplan engine enamel...its doesnt fade like caliper paint and is a fraction of the cost....

    Yeh I was just going to jack the car up and take the wheels off giving them a clean whilst waiting for the paint to dry and doing it that way.

    Dazal that does look very nice in blue and goes nicely with the black.
