    I had the calipers on my vette powdercoated red and I absolutely loved it...always got lots of compliments. I'll see if I can find some pics when I get home and I'll post them up.

    i think red would look good with nbm, me and my buddy put red lca relocation brackets on from umi they look really good from behind, colors go well together imo, dont seem like they would but they do,

    does any one have pics of the polished calipers, i would love to do this rather than paint

    thanks

    You're going to need to do several steps of sanding before you start buffing.

    I'd most likely go with black ... anyone ever done NBM calipers?

    I don't think red would look too bad, depending on the wheels.

    There's an '08 Z06 in Car and Driver this month, it's NBM w/red calipers. Looks pretty good, actually. I may go that route on mine when I get some decent wheels.

    Are you asking me? If so, I really like the C6 ZO6 wheels. I also really like the Anthracite colored Torque Thrust M wheels.

    Not sure what I'll get for my car, I'll probably end up with the EBay TTM knock-offs.

    All the wheels I really like are out of my price range.
