I thinking of spraying my Drums and pads. Maybe my bonnet hold upper thingy and Cam cover? but dunno if I have the guts to take that off in case I mess something up.

What colour do you guys reckon.

Orange has been done before, Green I don't really fancy, Nor purple, yellow, pink, red, black, silver.
I was thinking blue but im not sure if theres any better colours that would go with silver.

Ideaaas and if you have Gimp/PS can you show me those ideas via this picture..

(will have to get a side angle pic that you can see the brakes etc of my car as I can't find one in my collection, if anyone has the effort to check my thread please do.)

Also if someone could grab a pic and make my wheels white so I can see what that would be like..... Thanks:)

Yeah I thought purple but just a little bit dark for me. I don't really like red in all honesty had them on my old Si and it wasn't really very appealling.

I know I don't want to advertise them :P But be nice to spruce them up a bit.

And how do I go about it.. As my mate sprayed his with a can of spray and just went mad on the disks and pads :l surely thats not good??

You can buy brake and caliper paint from Halfrauds and hand paint it on, but they only come in like red, yellow, blue and black.
Or you could get them powdercoated any colour

calipers in blue to match the little blue bits on the steering wheel (i presume they're blue) and drums in black as painting them to stand out dont look great in my opinion but its your choice . . . you also go for fail safe red which im after doin.

is the halfords red caliper paint any good?

that'll do, do you need to pull calipers off to paint?

Halfrauds caliper blue is literally like brilliant blue. You don't have to take the calipers off, but if you wanted a more thorough job i'd take them off
