    Been thinking about painting my brake calipers. I get so tired of seeing red. Just wondering if anyone had theirs painted yellow with pics?

    I think they would look better on black. Just cant decide.
    Anyone use the G2 kit?

    Post up a good side pic and then it'll be easy just to photoshop for a quick idea of how it would look on your car.

    Yellow always looks cheap to me. If anything I'd paint them black and leave the lettering unpainted. That's the only thing I'd really ever do to my calipers.

    Deep yellow was what I was thinking. A couple years back I seen a black SS with chrome ZO6 wheels on it. It had the calipers painted yellow. And it looked really good. With the CCW classics they wont stick out as much I think. :shrug:

    I painted mine yellow about 4 years ago... have wished I painted them black for about the last 2 years... I am SICK OF YELLOW. I will be repainting them black(maybe different color lettering) I will see if I can get some other pics of the yellow brakes and post it on here this weekend for you.
    IMO go black with yellow letters!:beer:
