TexazReece said:I like the yellow addition on the wheels I agree tho adding black to the face of the wheels will get it flow more with the truck yes try that plati and see how it looks
stormsurge said:If plasty look good i might use a black, blue, purple, pearl.

Jkust said:I think just the yellow callipers with the ss logo is subtle. I'd maybe like red calipers a little more and black just kind of blends into the background. When you paint them to you completeley remove them from the car disconnecting the lines and paint them in a booth? How do you go about prepping them since presumably they have some corrosion on them?
stormsurge said:the calipers, You can just use brake cleaner and wire brush on a drill or grinder/ sandpaper. The rims i use 300 grit sand paper, etching primer and paint. I mix my own but rustolium works great on both. never found a need to by the caliper paint kits. Wast of money. You can make the calipers really nice with a little grinding. I left the calipers on and painted the rotors too. the tires need to come off. it makes all the taping/sanding alot easyer. One tire = about 3 hours of prep+paint.
