Painted my calipers
 
2 Attachment(s)
Friend of mine painted his and gave me an idea. Nice subtle difference, I drive a stone white 2013 wk2. Wheels are 17x8 Rockstar VD series machined black. Tires are 265/70R17 Nitto Trail Grapplers. I'll post pics of the whole SUV when I get out of the office. For now I'll post an old pic so you have a better idea of the overall look.

Nice! I've been thinking about doing red to my white trailhawk but I'm nervous it will add too much red to the other red accents. Still debating. But yours looks great!:thumbsup:

2013s only were available in Bright White. 2012 and earlier were Stone White. Cool wheels.

Thanks! That's true yours already has red accents but I think it would tie it all together nicely. If you decide to do it post pics!

Thanks. Yea it took about 45 mins per caliper. Did the front two first, then the back two a different day. I wanted to make sure it was done perfectly. I'm getting a little bored now that I've done everything else... Trying to get some new and different ideas.

This is mine so far. I'm open to some ideas of what I could do next!
