Hi folks, I’m contemplating getting my brake calipers powder coated on my thunder grey coupe. Undecided on color. What do you folks suggest? Here is the car in question. Forgestar D5 wheels with color matched front lips and rear beadlocks.

red also looks good, looks more factory and not overdone

Youknow, V wheels don't HAVE TO BE black...

No pink (yet), dark orange/light orange/gloss black/light grey/Red/ dark grey .. Light grey was good. The yellow (matches the calipers) is growing on me. The dark orange matched the amber running lamps (side markers) but it clashed hard with the calipers. So it looked bitchin in the front but awful from the side. best thing is the guards are simple to remeove/install to paint. There are two screws at each end of each piece so six quick screws and they're off. There are quite a few plastic body 'push buttons' to pop out but I haven't put them back in yet as they really aren't needed due to the way the guards fit into slots.
"Rustoleum X2" a product I just love to use. It is great paint.
Yeah, I've had them five different colors so far. When i saw the hellcats with the yellow I figured they needed to be tweaked.
