Here'* a VERY quick attempt at silver/gray grills and silver/gray calipers & brackets.

i still dig the silver grills

but i don't think the silver calipers stick out enough......hard to see past those blingin' wheels......maybe some anodized red or anodized blue for the calipers?!.....even yellow could be tight behind those blades?!

I was thinking the exact same thing. I wouldn't go with an 'anodized' paint. Just a simple heat resistant red paint for the brackets and calipers. I don't really like the anodized look too much unless it is 'real' anodizing on aluminum.

I think I'll try the silver grill first and I believe I'll stick with the red calipers and brackets.

silver grills and red calipers > me

If you did the red, you'd need a border, like silver or chrome.

That'* what I was thinking too. I am leaning more towards the silver grill because I wouldn't mind putting a pin stripe down the sides. Nothing big, just an 1/8" stripe probably 3" below the hard body line. I think that the only color pin stripe I would use would be silver. Don't know until I try it though...

I'm not dead set on the pinstriping either. It was just recommended to me by one of the guys I car pool with.
