I love the look. Need details. I like the blue caliper, not so much the drum. Personally, I would go with a black drum.

Sidenote: If you want to go with a body color for the brakes, you can put it right on top of the caliper as long as you used a high temp or caliper paint. I've done it on three of my cars and not had any problems

Yup,
I'm lovin those rims and the blue calipers, not so much the blue drums.
Say, could you do the face of your front discs (where the rim meets) black? I think it would set the centers of your rims off nicely.
