Painted my calipers....
 
Wanted to change it up from the stock red.

Initially the plan was to paint them blue. Ended up spraying six different shades of high temp blue and decided on one. Now, we were using a translucent color over a metallic silver base. Both are high temp rated to 500*. So we prep, clean and mask and my buddy starts spraying the silver base.

Well, we both agreed that it looked pretty good and went with the current color scheme that I have on the Jeep so we just did the metallic silver and used the black Brembo decals that I had purchased back in the spring.

Here's the pics:

That looks great! Your ride is so f-ing sweet! Nice job...I love the inverse you have going with the wheels and brakes (silver SRT on black wheels, black BREMBO on silver calipers) FTMFW

You pointing out them being red and not matching my color scheme did get the red to start bothering me again and made me want to paint them asap. The red bothered me before I bought it, then I didn't mind it, then it bothered me again :lol:
