What paint did you go with? I am going to be switching tires for a trip to Florida, and plan on painting the calipers before I put my big wheels back on.

Yep, black duplicolor caliper paint, just took the wheels off, clean everything and sprayed a few coats on, didnt bother taping anything off just used a peice of cardboard and held it behind whatever I was spraying and got almost no overspray on the rotors. And it looks great! Still gotta do the rears but I just finished a detail job and its hot out so I only had the energy left for the fronts!

Oh and yesterday I had had enough of my faded wiper cowels so those came off and got a coat of paint to!
One on the right is faded and one on the left is painted, looks weird cause its still wet in the pic.

Great mod! Took all of ten mins to take them off and an hour to paint and dry them. And putting them back on was eaiser then taking them off! I am going to do my wiper arms next but I didnt have any black rustolium around and thats what I want to use because of the rust already starting at the joints.
