painting brake calipers
I want to paint my brake calipers red and i was wondering if i should paint the center hub area red as well or will it look nasty? should i just paint it silver? i believe isaac painted his calipers red and the hub area silver am i right? What should i do? Suggestions and/or pics will help thanx

I painted my calipers only, I didn't want to go overboard painting everything.

I did my calipers red at first, but the hub area looked so bad that I went back and painted them silver. That combo looks really good tho imo... thumbsup

i used a can of Dupi Color high heat spraypaint (you can get it at autozone for like 5 bucks).Its really strong and resists heat and crap. But if you are gonna brush paint it use the cap becuase i put my paint in a paint bucket and it ate right through it. I will post a pic of the can up soon

just make sure you use "high heat" red versions..otherwise you'll be soon repainting them.

imo, i would just paint he calipers.
