    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.

    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?

    IMO polished calipers would be better than silver paint..

    Of the 3, orange looks best. Polished is a great idea too...except for the work involved...

    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.

    I won't paint them until I swap the cobra/mach1 brakes on. [MENTION=11896]ttocs[/MENTION]
