    I wonder what gold would look like ? otherwise silver. For all the critisism calliper painting gets I was next to a Toyota sports car today and the callipers were that horrile dry corroded silver of exposed metal and looked pi55.

    Unless you are up close black just looks like dirty calipers, any other colour wins.
