    Not seen this, but having thought about it, I think Arden Blue (VXR) would look a treat????

    A little money saving tip for ya Redrapter 141. I've painted all the calipers and drums on my cars since i started driving. I only paint them black as i'm not into making them stand out i just prefer them not to look rusty!! Don't waste money on expensive 'Caliper Paint' just use hammerite!! As i said i've done all my cars and none have had the paint fall off. The longest car i owned was 4 years and it was an XR3i which i drove enthusatically so it stood up to some abuse too!

    I would agree with Vaux man G and go a bluey colour.

    I just cleaned the brake calipers with a wire brush then just painted them with hammerite! It has a glossy finish to it but i think they also do matt and hammed look too.
