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...

i painted mine red (black celi), but i'd advise either going blue or silver...anything else might look sloppy thumbsup

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.
