    Hammerite do a lovely gold paint. I have my Ultra blue MK4 front calipers painted gold and back drums black. Looked good imo.

    yellow on the front, but dont paint the drums as they will stand out as a sore thumb IMHO

    drums should only ever be done black - anything else looks shit

    the fronts can be done whatever colour you want
