    Powder Coaring Calipers

    Gents,

    I plain on powdercoating my brake calipers with in the next month...I just bought some new Hypersilver Evos and I need to clean up the background if you will. I have 95TA, yea yea, but I do have LS1 front brakes I am going to put on...Going to get some rotors (any suggestions) and I am going to get the calipers powdercoated...Question I have is what color should I go with???My car is blue, actually I painted it like a Viper blue w/ Pearl white stripes...so not sure what color to go with...I was thinking a darker red for that professional look but any ideas would be helpful thanks!

    Car can be seen by viewing my public profile

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    Shout out to a fellow yunz'r!!! I was born/raised in pittsburgh. Sounds like an awesome car, love to see pix, bro!

    On that blue, i suggest going with polished aluminum calipers and black brackets for a clean look. Our sponsor, Triple H Coating can do all the work for you too.

    when I click on your avatar, i don't see a sig pic, but the profile pic you have up looks good!

    anyway, 01/ta beat me to him, but you can PM ntimid8r7 for more info, but I think you need to be a member for like 10 days first, i can't remember?

    PM is "Private Message"

    if you click on my name, a dropdown list will appear and one of the options (should be) "Send a Private Message to third_shift|studios"

    Like i said, i think you have to be a member for atleast 10 days before you can PM anyone b/c we used to get spammers who'd sign up and PM everyone gay porn.
