This past weekend used a Dupli-color blue caliper paint kit (purchased from walmart for 15$) to paint all 4 of my break calipers. The paint seems pretty good, I'm happy with the color. I was reminded of ford blue when I bought it, but as you can see with the spinner it does not match, at all. I am satisfied with how it goes with the paint job. So here are some pictures for anyone considering (taken mainly of the wheel with a little bit of body so you can get an idea, the nature of the V6 wheel really hides the calipers, but I still like it)

Very nice, I'm probably going to paint my calipers black. I am having difficulty deciding if I want black or red.

torch red with w/v blue calipers

Not sure if I like what I've done but I don't have the energy to undo it... ya think maybe I might have cleaned the wheel wells while I was in there??:doh:

questions....

nonsense - is that the "silver" paint they sell, or did you custom mix it? It has a blue cast on my screen.

goliath - different choice...pretty cool. Got any wider shots of the car with it done?

silver with a bit of blue mixed in. I was thinking of adding some red as well, to make it purple-ish, but I didn't feel like buying another kit

I'm at work now, but I'll post some when i get home. Forgive me as the car needs a washing but I've been unable to attend to it. So don't expect pretty black slick tires in the picture :p

The blue calipers give a sportier feel without giving it a 'ricer' feel I got when I thought about painting em red or yellow. I'm very happy with 'em
