Cobra brake's & be done w/ it! Red, black or silver

I plan to paint the ones on the focus when ever I redo the brakes.

Oh, If you paint the rotors it will make a huge difference also. I painted mine while still on the car. Just use painters tape to mask the pad surfaces and bolts. remove the calipers. Dont forget to also get the outside of the rotor and fins. Mine were like this for about 3 years and still looked pretty good when I replace them last year with new rotors.
That look's like some desent caliper paint & the color's wow! O r you just add some Baer or Cobra caliper's in Red, Black or silver or plain, like I did.
