All weekend I was contemplating if I should paint my calipers red even though it is abit ricey. But after seeing how white my calipers were compared to Cyde btw which I parked next to, I decided it had to be done. Right before I applied the paint I tired taking off that white coat one last time, but I guess it slowly baked itself onto the caliper, so I just sprayed it.
Only the front ones are done, it was to cold outside to be doing all four!

This is the final result.







On a side note, where can I get a JDM Honda Accord Euro R Front Grille w/Badge and the works locally or online. How much am I looking at? Or should I get my friend that’s going to Japan in a few weeks to pick one up for me and some other stuff.

What colour are you painting you grill/spoiler?

Hmm center wheel cap red, did you mean outlining the A part red or were you plaing to do the whole wheel cap?

I seen a Audi with front blue calipers with rear blacks. the blue kinda looked ugly and the black was a bit off. Pending on the weather I might paint my rear ones black. Just to be safe, does anyone know how to remove black caliper paint? :laugh:
