Yeah, I think orange would also be pretty sweet with Sonic Blue. I added some red pin-striping to the front grill to break up that expanse of solid black so it makes more sense to keep the red theme on the calipers in my case. I could see if the grill stripes were orange, but that contrast might be a bit much. If all I was doing was painting the calipers, orange would probably be better than red...

I found that the spray kits are 10x better than the brush on kits.

VHT has a spray paint. I also know that some auto parts stores carry ultra high temp spray paint and clear. I used that on my brembos and they looked like they were powdercoated. Just make sure to never get brake cleaner on any of the painted surfaces.
