If you paint the drums paint them black. It looks odd if they are red, or what ever color you choose. Painting the calipers is easy and I think the kit is only $20 or less.

Venom used BBQ paint and it does a great job https://www.gmforum.com/t280778/, lots cheaper than the caliper paining kits as well.

I painted mine black. I just like the tid bit of glossy look to it over stock dirty gray.

Lol did you really expect anyone to vote no?

$3 to paint all four!? SOLD! *googles if I can find it at a local store, I think home depot might* Man I really need a digital camera.

But wait I need to clean it all, right? With what?

Sounds good.

Is that the same way you painted your calipers red?
