they look very smart.
i have recently painted my break drums and callipers but i went for black.... i wanted to play it safe and didn't want to look like a typical boy racer. 
although what i have done looks clean and smart , your Red ones look very smart and i may have to re do mine ;) 
THANKSSS

It does look good but i think certain colours look best on certain coloured cars ie blue on white and red on black but it all comes down to yiur own preference :)

Yeah exactly , I played it safe and just went for black in the end ... However I think red and blue would also look nice on silver (which is what I have)
