    What color to paint calipers?

    I'm really thinking about going color matching with the car, navy blue.
    And using chrome or silver TA decals for them.

    Or should I go with silver calipers with black or navy blue lettering, or black with chrome or silver lettering?

    All the stripes/badges/inlays on the car are going to be a metallic silverish

    Edit: I don't want it to stand out too much (ie like red calipers would on a blue car)

    The Red won't look too bad, I did it on my NBM Formula. Mine need to be redone so I am going with the Silver/Aluminum color for a change.
    I vote for the silver with Blue or Black lettering on yours.

    haha. I figured I would get answers all over the place

    i've narrowed it down to navy blue or silver calipers
    the navy blue would have chrome/silver lettering
    the silver would have navy blue lettering

    hmmmmmm
