Thanks, personally I think white goes well with almost any color. Na no drop, that wheel gap is so horrendous. I need to do something about that SOON lol.

I have painted most of mine in the past. The BEST kit to use IMHO is the G2 paint caliper system from tire rack. It has a hardner that you mix with it and you paint it on with a brush. It dries to a VERY hard state. Also when it dries, it dries smooth.

Heres the link to the company. Check out tire rack though. It sells for 34.99 I believe and its enough to do all four calipers.

Just wanted to share.
