kona blue with painted calipers?

i used to have red on my kona blue but i gotta redo them and i was thinking maybe a different color. do yall think yellow would stick out way to much?? anyone have a picture of one with yellow? last time i painted them while they were on the car, is it hard to take them off and paint them?

I think gold would look better than yellow, or maybe a bright Grabber Blue or even silver. The calipers are only held on with two pins, but you will have to disconnect the brake line if you want to bench paint them. If you never did brake work before, proceed with caution.

i was thinking more of a goldish yellow and that grabber blue is a good thought to. ive seen a murdered out corvette with that blue and it was nice.

Grabber blue was my thought too. Saw one at Mustang week at Myrtle Beach and it looked good. When I did mine, I just pulled the bolts out, took a piece of wire and suspended it from the suspension so i didnt have to remove them and bleed them out and it worked well. If you wanna add a nice little touch get some running pony logo decals and put on them after you paint them and then clear over it. looks good with out the high cost of the custom calipers.
