Having a hard time choosing a color to go with pacific gree . Can someone paint my calipers a dark purple, lime green, and metallic orange? Separate photos. So I can choose a color. Thanks in advance!!

this seems like one of those set ups I have read lately where someone asked the internet to photochop something and really makes me wish I knew how to chop.

K, these are pretty quick chops so theyre kind of sloppy but you should be able to get the idea. Only thing is I wasn't quite able to get a "gloss" to the orange.

Hope that helps at least a little.

Yeah it helps. Helps me see that no color looks good on this green lmao. I don't really care for any of them. Any suggestions on other colors??

I honestly liked the orange.
Other that, a gloss black would look good, but wouldn't have the pop you're probably after.

of the 3 orange looks best but it doesn't have the "HELL YEA DO IT" look.
Less is more leave them black.

How hard do you think it would be to get the calipers to match the polished lip of my rims? Maybe spray them a metallic silver?

just gotta rub the shit out of them..... 300/600/1000/1500/2000 and then buff them but the bracket is steel so you will need to figures out how to keep it from rusting.

Honestly I can see the idea of painting a nice set of upgraded brakes a funky/bright color to draw attention to them but to go through all that for stock calipers seems like more trouble then its worth.
