Oh yea! Oh YEA! I'm all for color coordination and that looks perfect. I would have painted mine burgundy, but couldn't find brake paint in that color.

What'* next? how about a gold engine cover to match? That would be totally different! Or chrome/with Gold lettering to bring out your rims.

Looks really good. Well worth the time to keep from seeing cruddy or rusty calipers through the swoops.

At local parts stores. Duplicolor makes a kit.

Although. I got a tip and it'* a great one. You can get a spray can of high temp engine paint and it works just as good with less drying/curing time. Much easier to apply with more colors available.

What paint did you use?

I painted mine with VHT and I'm quite happy with it.
