Looks real good, PowerSurge. I really was unsure of the red and black initially, but the more I look at it the more that I think it looks really good

Can you post pics with the wheels reinstalled?

I used the Dupli-color caliper paint kit, available at Advance or Autozone. It comes in a box, with a can of spray prep, the pint of caliper paint, and the brush. The stuff dries fast so you need to be able to do all 4 calipers at the same time. For the black I used VHT roll bar/chassis gloss black, and just sparyed it into the cap and used a brush. Three coats on all parts.

I have Ti 18" wheels, and I will get some pics this weekend after I was the car.

I'd like to do the same, but have Red Candy Metallic and haven't found a Caliper paint that color, so black all over or any suggestions, here's the stock look, Bright metal caliper's behind chrome wheels....

OP - Looks sharp. I'm thinking of doing that to mine when it's time for new brake pads.

Is that a factory chin spoiler? Looks fantastic! Might want to try black caliper paint or silver since your color wouldn't look good with a bright red like the OP's.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I believe it's the Bojix splitter.

OT, but Yes, Bojix splitter, I put it in my signature as I really like it and want to give them credit.
There's several out there by now, I'm thinking of doing the very bottom lip in CF Di-Noc or ... Black PD... so maybe that's my answer, Black Calipers behind the chrome wheels...
