    i think they would compliment your brake calipers rather nicely. do you plan on painting anything else in the engine bay red? maybe the valve covers as well?

    I do not like the color red for my stuff just because my camaro is the first car I have ever owned without red or white on it.

    But I would paint them red along with the valve covers it will stand out plus if you really get crazy you can always paint your intake red too. I did mine blue and I love it!!!

    I think as long as you don't go crazy with it, it should look just fine. It looks tacky when people overkill the engine with color unless it's suttle like pewter (just my opinion). Also think about if you paint the coils red maybe painting the valve covers black to make the red pop more.

    paint the coil packs red, the mounting bracket high gloss black, and polish your valve covers so the underside of the coils can be seen too

    no, I don't. I didn't do the whole cover yet, I just did a small area on one to see if they would polish up. I started with 220grit, then 400, 600. then hit it with a buffing wheel on the diegrinder.
    I did sand & paint my intake blue to match the car, and paint the coil covers silver and blue....il try and get pics
