    Opinions on Brake Caliper color

    What color do you guys think I should paint my brake Calipers.....Black or Metallic Gold? I've got gold decals on my car right now to go with it. I feel like black would blend into my black car too much, especially if I decide to get some black wheels.

    I think gold MIGHT look tacky but its hard to tell without seeing it. Id go with black personally but its not my car.

    I think that on a black car with gold accents, the gold would look good.

    My next question is, does anyone know if there are any gold metallic brush on kits like the duplicolor one? I'd rather not have to take off my calipers if I don't have to.

    I've never seen gold metallic for caliper color. It might either look really awesome or really bad. Only one way to find out

    Post up pics after you are done!

    I will and if it looks bad I'll just sand them back down and do black.

    Duplicolor doesn't have a gold caliper paint. But, G2 does. You can check your local auto parts stores, or there is always online

    I thought g2's was more of a yellowish gold color not like the gold on my Trans Am...Nevermind the gold they show on their website doesn't quite match what it actually looks like for some odd reason.

    Looks like you can get a color swatch from them to see just how well it would match or not.
