Very nice!!

I painted my exhaust tips bright gold and clearcoated them a couple months ago. That dirty look before was just not cuttin' it. I know what you mean Don't you like 'em so much better? Cleans up the look really nicely

Very good idea to paint your calipers and drums. Also your pipes. Makes them like you said stand out nicely.
