Hi, thought i'd start a new topic as my drums and calipers are starting to go a bit rusty. Looks terrible through the alloys, just wondering what colour people have done theirs, if anyone has.

Have something to contribute?

Well I plan on eventually doing mine black as they will always look dirty I figure black is the best colour for them

Only ever do the drums black (you don't want to draw attention to them) do the calipers whatever you desire, red is popular :)

I have done mine Blue , take a look at my Build thread , Blue against the White looks great and different from the many Red people go for.

I bought black then getting in my car I saw a celica with black calipers but didn't like the look. I was kinda thinking a dark gunmetal grey metallic sort of colour. Don't worry I wasn't thinking anything standoutish like yellow or anything. I think gloss black looks a bit old restoration projecty (sorry if anyone has gone gloss black, unless it's an old restoration project).
