painting calipers, would like opinions...
I'm considering painting my brakes for my next mod (probably should have done that by now grin ). What color would you recommend to match my car and rims? I'm thinking blue or silver...

Edit: It's a GT, so drums are in the back.

most definitely paint them red so you can see that while your driving

your car is so clean...why mess with it... I think it looks great..nice wheels too. I really like the multi-spoke look. If anything why not do a big brake kit, nothing nicer than seeing some nice machined, slotted, and drilled metal behind some multi spoke wheels going down the highway...

I'd have to find a junkyard GTS setup so that I could hook up the rear with discs...seems like too much trouble.

would this work for you if you got the rear big brake kit for the GTS and then just bought the front for the GT
