    brake caliper color opinions?

    Hi,
    I am asking this questions on all the forums. I am looking for opinions on painting my brake calipers. I have three options:

    Red (black or silver “Firehawk” stickers)
    Black (silver “Firehawk” stickers)
    Silver (black “Firehawk” stickers)

    I am struggling because red would really stand out, but I’m not sure if it would look right. My main concern is how red will look with the purple “i” in Firehawk. I plan to put small “Firehawk” stickers on the front calipers. There is a lot of red on the back (taillights and “PONTIAC” fill in letters) but nothing at all on the front. So what do you think?

    Black would look clean and be easier to keep clean, but wouldn’t stand out.

    Silver would be the same as stock basically.

    Let me know what you guys think, here are some pics of the car.





    Thanks!

    Im thinking of doing the black with silver stickers because after looking at some pictures I think that silver would look kind of "off" being right behind chrome.
    Thanks for the pics!

    No offense to anyone, but I think the red looks kinda cheap. I say go with the black.
