What color to paint brakes
Well, I'm finally ready to do this, again. I got lazy before. I read Isaac's "How to". Thanks, btw. My question lies in what color to paint them. I have a lowered carbon blue Celica with 17" Chrome wheels. I'll try to figure this picture posting thing out. But what colors would look good? I'm trinking red, grey, or blue. All opinions welcome. Thanks.

Yeah keep the colors all the same inside and out. No more than 2 colors.

yes this is simple and wouldn't really require our opinions...whatever color scheme you want...paint them that color...but since you have chrome wheels...silver may go good cause I think any other color will through everything off too much.

Well, The interior is mostly stock, black leather and grey. I like the interior the way it is. I do have 3 neons inside the car (soon to be 5). Those are blue. Under the Hood I have red sway bars, an Injen Polished CAI (some red on it) and Hotchkis Camber plates. I think those are purple(they messed up my order.)

I'm thinking...
Red looks professional, but is off scheme except the engine.
Blue is matching the neons, but won't go as well as...
Silver/ Grey will go with everything well.

So I have it down to 3 colors. Let me know, please guys. Thanks.

I think silver because it will flow with the wheels, flow with the interior gray and flow with the gray in the engine...

I agree with VSGTS14 - black with silver/gray is nice and sinister looking. Also, happens to be my combo. Black/silver makes matching the whole car easy because there is abundance of aluminum/gun metal/polished parts out there. Personally, I don't vibe on the whole dayglo flashy colors a lot of tuners do. I prefer a wicked looking car as opposed to one that looks like a grade school art project!

Thanks. I think it's gonna' be silver. I get my car back from the shop on Thurs, but I need to drive it until Sunday. Maybe then I'll tackle this.

And my 3 neons are done tastefully. 2 in the footwells, and one mounted to the ceiling. When I figure out hardwiring, I want to put 2 in the trunk, mounted upside down. That'll light up the 2 subs and the 2 amps. So only the roof neon will be visible. Anyone wanna e-mail me about hardwiring, please feel free to do so. Thanks, --Rob
