Ive found yellow, red and black. Can you please post some pics of the different
colors doesnt matter if I seen them...

Vinyl not good enough? Painting is better than tint?
I think caliper"s color depends on car's color.
Red would be nice anyway

I was going to do that! I have the paint just don't know if I really want to do it, debating if I want to leave it simple or go purple. Btw it's been done by a guy already. lol
