    Painting my calipers

    I have a lapis blue 987 and I'm thinkin of painting my calipers yellow or red.  Which color would you guys pick? 

     

    Any pix would be muchhh appreciated! Smiley

    I'm not a huge fan of painted calipers (my favorite is Silver), but I think Yellow goes with Blue better than Red goes with Blue.

    How are you going to paint them, and what with?


    Re: Painting my calipers

    I'm thinking of doing the same, but the other way around...

    My calipers are red with "AP-racing" in white, but I want them black with "AP-racing" in yellow, do you need special heat resisiting paint? How go to work to paint the letters?

     I think Powder Coating works better than Paint for this.

    G2 has a kit:

    And you can buy the calper decals on ebay.  I know it probably wont be as good as powder coating but I would assume powder coating is way expensive.  this is an inexpensive way to get a good look, IMO
