what colour calliper?

Recommended Posts

Need to service my car in a 1000 miles going to change my brake pads at this time to.  Got to tidy up a few things on the car at this time one of them being the callipers, but i can’t decide what colour to paint them, not a big fan of painting them red.  If it helps the car colour is silver and i am currently thinking of painting them gold.

Hi, if you fancy gold try plastikote antique gold (B34). My is200 is silver and I have painted mine a deep cherry red-humbrol enamel (20) gloss-looks good, that's just my opinion.

Black or Silver would be my choice. I think dodgy coloured calipers on an RX just emphasise how small the brakes and calipers actually are in comparison to the wheels.

Got to be yellow...

Nah, just kidding! Gold sounds a good choice on a silver body. I did toy with idea of painting mine but couldn't really decide what colour to go for (red would have been a definite no-no, I think). Have you see there are are Lexus caliper stickers on ebay? Might be worth a set of black ones if you go for gold.
