Talking Painted Calipers

Hey guys Im looking into painting my calipers but wanted to see the variety
in colors because I cant afford to buy a BBK .So far with a little research
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

well why don't you just go to your local auto store, walk the paint isle and see what they have, then picture it on your calipers... easy as that

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
