What color should I paint my calipers.

I bought some red boxster s calipers recently and am rebuilding them. I'm thinking of painting them yellow as I'm not sure red looks great on a lapis blue car. What do y'all think. I'm considering gloss black, yellow, or sticking to red.

Post a picture when you get a chance. Ill also be installing an mk1 bumper, can't wait she is going to look bad ass. It's to bad I took a new job and will drive her less than I previously did (which was once a week).

There's a pic of my car with newly painted callipers (porsche calliper transfers still in the post though) that I posted in this section under the heading " Hello 986 lovers" yesterday!
