Carey Smith, did you use plasti-dip? I used that on my last car to make the silver accents flat black. Gave a nice contrast to the silver exterior. I have the midnight sapphire and the silver accents look good. Was contemplating plasti-dipping them for a change up.

I would imagine you must have used High temp spray paint for the callipers, clean,mask well,then spray paint, a couple of thin coats my guess....did you add clear to the top coat?

Yes i definitely had to use high temp spray for the callipers. I didn't use clear mask unfortunately. Its been a year since I did it and had to respray just once so far.

My thoughts exactly. If you don't like it, you can take it off easily. Looks like that may be my next thing to do this spring. :smile

What are you doing next ?????????????????????????
Well I also have a custom exhaust. I posted a sound clip here a while back. You can probably look it up. I also have an ipad that i used Velcro to attach to the dash. Because we all know the navigation sucks. Here is a picture that i screen shot from a video since i'm at work and not next to the car. Not the best picture

Plasti dip would get slaughtered on callipers...it does NOT like heat ....nothing beats high temp spray, and for added longitivtiy clear coat it... My Brembo's are red (factory) and they are powder coated.

I agree the black wheels look good on a white vehicle (and some other colors) also a fan of red calipers - that being said, I don't think the combo would work as well with my Silver Sand - so I'll be keeping the stock look
