Any caliper covers for the GT-500?

I really miss the red brembos my Challenger SRT had on front and back, with a black car it just looked gorgeous. I have found the MGP covers for the rear calipers, but can't find a set that includes them for the FRONT which uses brembos, is there a reason for this? It would suck to have to take them off and get them powder-coated. Thanks!

What year is your GT500?

Edit: I'm pretty sure they don't make covers for brembo brakes. To most people putting covers on brembos is stupid. The reason people put covers on in the first place is to look like they have brembos. I'd invest in some caliper paint. It will look something like this on Brembos:

2012, I find it so strange they have HUGE calipers in the front, and like...basic toyota\honda size calipers in the back that aren't even painted (fronts are black)

Really wanting to spice up that look.
