You mean you want to paint your calipers right? Brembo red is a nice choice, thats what I did

I would only go red if they were true Brembo brakes...IMO. But then again, if they were true Brembo brakes, painting them red would be redundant, now wouldn't it?

Most people don't have 1,500 to blow on a big brake kit though...

Buy the rattle cans, just use some masking tape to deal with over spray.

are you doing the drums too?

thats what im thinking, my other concern is the centers on the drilled rotors, the ones on my eclipse rusted in the center, maybe i should spray these black. thanx again for the fast responses. [thumb]

I haven't heard of anybody painting their rotors... you do mean brake calipers don't you?

EDIT: i have seen what they look like... but i honestly think the factory color looks better.

they are ikon GT6 rims. oh and dannyboy, i have an svt so no drums here, rotors on all 4. this thread was about painting calipers, but i was also debating painting the centers of my new rotors where the rim meets the rotor to prevent rust since most zinc plating is only temporary. thanks again.. oh and if all fits well i will be selling my stock 6 spoke svt rims...[:D]
