I used the Duplicolor kit from Autozone (cost about $15) and chose red. I noticed recently come chipping on the rears, so I'm going to do some touch up painting this weekend. Probably my fault anyway, I didn't do enough coats the first time around. You can see mine on my cardomain page (link below). I think the stock color of the calipers was silver.

did you remove the calipers or just tape off every around them?

I started out with the intention of taping them, but ended up only taping off a couple of areas. After the first one, I realized that the paint would go on easily without runs, so I just free-handed it. The calipers have a rough surface, so it made it easier. I probably only put on 2 coats, and it likely needed 3 or 4. There was 80% of the paint left when I got finished.

Ya you need to take off the wheels to get to the calipers. In my Opinion red is the only color to go with no matter what color you have. Just looks the best on calipers.

The kits we sell are some of the best on the market!

You dont have to go red, some people prefer to paint them black so they blend in. On my F150 I painted them silver so they would look new all the time without being too flashy. Personally, I think red calipers are a little overdone nowadays.

I've decided to have a local speedshop do them for me. I'm going with black and fusion in white lettering (my interior inspired me) :) Hopefully I'll get it done soon.

What are they charging you? That is a great idea about the Fuion on there. I am going with red and if i use tape to spell fusion then when done i can pull off the tape and the fusion will be silver. :lol:

The Fusion is getting the same treatment as my T-bird. 1 @ a time caliper & anchor removal. High temp Red on the calipers and High temp aluminum on the anchors, and finish with high temp clear on the calipers. I think this looks much better than red on just one part or both. I'll be using about 5 coats per anchor/caliper. I think I'll do a tech. write up on this for everyone. :)

Anyone tried yellow on the calipers yet? How did it look?

i have seen it on other cars. (Yellow ones) But i am sure it would look good. May need to go with more coats of paint since it is a light color.

I have a White Milan V6 and I am REALLY thinking about doing them in white.
I have these rims on order: http://www.enkei.com/jpeg files/Wheels/RS7Silver.jpg
and I want to do the calipers but red is out, too common. Blue is a possibility, but blue and white are the Ford colors and this is a Merc. I don't like yellow and black would just hide them.
