Which colour for my calipers?
« on: 00:44, Tue 11 October 2011 »
I have a white R5, and I'm tempted to paint my calipers red.
I wonder what you guys have done?

My local store has silver, blue, red, yellow, black caliper paint.

On my BMW I've painted them silver. Silver or black is the only proper thing for that kind of car.

But the R5 is an old sportscar and since it has red carpet and red stiching in the seats red calipers could be cool IMO  :D

I would go with red, My cars white wih Red,


Dont buy expensive caliper though, Normal spray paint works fine and you can get a better finish. Ive even got stickers on mine.

Yep red all the way, just make sure you clean them well so the paint sticks, hammerite smooth works a treat but it goes on thin so you need to give them loads of coats

Yeah, definately many coats. But I'll be using a paintbrush and not spray.

DeanGT5 where did you get those stickers?
