Brake color options

So I got a new brake set up coming

What color should they be?

I've got an all green Jeep, with black rims...

I plan on painting the calipers, and rotors (not the contact surface, but the rest of it, with a high temp paint, so it doesnt look gross when it rusts)

I was thinking Black rotors, with black calipers... I've got some green g2 paint, but I think it might make it a little too Ricey

What about gold rotors, with a black caliper? Or vice versa?

Or should I do something crazy?

Probably going in this weekend, so give me ideas

edit: I am an idiot, it should be brake color options... Flame away

Re: Break color options

IMO...something that goes with your paint and is kinda obvious and over the top. Gold would be good with green lettering, or lime green with dark green lettering....but keep the rotor base black so it doesnt compete with the calipers

Nope... i picked up a set of super cheap calipers from "a car"

I found a company while surfing a bimmer forum that will create custom brackets to fit the breaks to whatever you send in, within reason.

I sent them a knuckle and rear plate from a wrecked wk i got on carpart and they said they can fab something up for me.

Should be interesting, hopefully it works out, MUCH cheaper option than the brembos

Edit: also, a green car with red calipers... blahhh, too christmas-ie
