for one thing, dont do black since you won't be able to see it from far,do white or a lighter blue than your car

I used *gasp* Ford blue on my calipers, they came out almost the exact color of my car...but I just remembered you have carbon blue not spec blue so never mind...

The red would clash heavily with the blue considering they are contradicting colors. I would go with a darker blue (close to carbon blue) or a blue that matches the Intake and such. It doesn't matter if you can see it from a ways away or not, as long as it looks good.

Blue Celica = Blue Calipers, make sure they are the same blue as the exterior, and not some baby blue BS with a Spectra blue car, that looks really bad if you do that.
