    Default Black calipers on a black vec?

    I want to paint my calipers a colour other than red or blue .

    I thought about gloss black with either red or white vx lettering.

    My calipers are small (285) up front so I want something a bit understated.
    What do you think. A good idea or bad. Should I just leave it alone.
    Thanks

    Not sure mate, might look good with some white lettering. Are your wheels silver?

    Black is perfectly fine if you are happy with that, I went the blue route to be different from my usual Red caliper choice. My car is still running 285's with 17" SRi f/l alloys

    Think I will go for it on the fronts and see. Worst case will be that I hate it and have to paint them again.

    Will post up some pics when done to see what you all think.

    Cheers

    I think it should look quite good then mate. If your wheels were also black then it would have been too much black lol. Go for it, you can always paint them again if you change your mind

    Photoshopped my calipers (black Vec, standard Sri facelift alloys) lime green and it looked surprisingly good. Bit different too.
