That looks really sharp! I like it. You think the red would look good on a Midnight Blue SSEi?

My dads gonna paint the front calipers on his GTP and what he did was buy red for the calipers and black for the brackets. I don't know if that will look better or not, but it will make the grey brackets darker to help make the caliper stand out. However, I don't think its necessary because it looks really good with it all red like you did. I like those tires too!

Looks good.... I like the red..... both my rides have their calipers and drums painted red (can't really notice on the 91)

In anycase..... they look great

Looks great, been wanting to do mine for a while, so does my girlfriend on her SER. We might just do them together, won't have enough jack stands though.

Anybody got a link for the VHT paint? is it spray or brush on?
