Painting Calipers. Opinions

26 posts in this topic

I'm gonna get my calipers painted soon. Just wondering on what colours people think would look good. I like red but it's a bit common, also I think white would look awesome and would blend on with all my other stuff (all interior lights, puddle lights, all interior will be white soon and also I've got the white dials), the big problem with white though would be keeping them clean so it's probably a big no. Any opinions would be good and I could do with a link to some? Cheers

Yellow or Orange

That would certainly be a bit different just think it would stand out a little much

I'd go the blue martyntdci suggested - I was going to paint mine that colour but couldnt find it in a heatproof paint

Yellow look good, but hard to keep clean.

That blue looks nice, but will it stand out behind the dark arch?

I'm going the "common" route and going Brembo red.

Blue would definitely look good and then they're not red like all the others.

Forgot to say there is a dull yellow that is nice, not the canary bright yellow.

Like I said, I have seen Yellow on a White car before and it looks smart

Yeah, I'll have a look. It does but your probably right enough, it won't really stand out at all. Red stands out a lot and won't be the hardest to keep clean so that'll be good

Yeah, that sounds good. Will be a nightmare to keep clean but will look really nice

I also reckon yellow would look good.

Smother it in poorboys wheel sealant and rinse weekly I'm sure they'd stay sparkling

Yeah defo. I wash the car pretty much weekly anyways so it would probably be ok

To be fair that picture above has much bigger brakes than a fiesta so it shouldn't stand out as much as that

Yeah, that defo looks the best but I just don't think it would stand out enough

I was thinking of doing mine white, no less practical than a white car and would great for a few minutes at least, just after you washed them!

Would look epic, just keeping it clean would be a nightmare :/

I'm having mine done red too. Common I know, but my Fiesta van is black, so the red calipers will match the red rear lamp clusters...

;)
