I also painted the bracket, because the silver color the calipers/bracket came in didn't look good with the red at all. I'll be doing the bracket portion in black tomorrow to offset the red.











I like this shot:

Looks very nice. I will be doing the same soon. What kind of paint did you use? Did you remove the calipers to paint them?

Thanks, I bought the Duplicolor Caliper paint kit from Autozone (it was $15 I believe). I didn't remove the calipers at all, I just used the masking tape (it comes with it) to cover up anything I didn't want paint on, it was very easy! It took awhile though, I did three coats over a 24hr period making sure the paint had plenty of time to dry in between coats. Oh, they had several other colors, black, white, red and blue. I think anything other than red would look a little ricey...but that's MHO.

Thanks for the info. I agree on the color thing. I wish gold was an option. Trying to get the Brembo look without the price. I'll probably go with red though. Red on red should look okay.

Thanks for the comments guys :) I think it's a nice visual touch up until some real performance brake kits come out.
