    Brake pads and calipers

    I bought the thunderracing breaking package but its been delayed so long i ended up having to get pieces instead, and i wont be getting pads.

    i got the powerslot rotors and brake lines, but now i need to find ceramic pads and id also like to replace the calipers if possible, but i know next to nothing about braking systems and compadibility.

    i dont care if they are an upgrade in performance over stock, right now i'm just lookin for looks. do they make any red calipers for my 1996 trans am? also, is there a certain size pad i need for my car or are they generic? if not, what size am i looking for, and is there any other spec i need to know to order?

    direct links would be appreciated, i need them asap.

    you can get ceramic pads from your local parts store. just ask for them for your car.

    i don't know where you could buy already painted stock calipers. all most people do is clean them and paint them with enamel spray can paint.

    does it come out well though? i would think it would chip off in a matter of days with the temperature changes and constant exposure
