    Ok, so I finally got my new wheels. But now you can really see my calipers. Do any of you know of a good product to paint my calipers so that I don't have to remove them?

    What brake caliper color would go good with my Berrylium? I was thinking red calipers.

    Need some feed back.

    Thanks guys.

    :iS:

    I think something similar to the Brembo gold color would look good...but it would stand out a lot

    thanks everyone for all the feed back. I think the gold sounds good, but the black looks really nice with the infiniti decals.

    I did not see gold caliper paint. So most likely will be the black.

    Thanks Pierce. Yeah, I think I'm going to go with the black.

    Think it's going to look good. Now I need to find the infiniti emblems.

    He wants to do his car also, so I'll tell him I'll buy his kit also and most def he will do mine also. lol
