White and Red always go well together . Use the VHT though, it drive faster and sprays on better. I topped mine off over the decal with a clear engine paint...the gloss looks awesome.

Red is a classic brembo color on Porsches, I'd stick with red unless you have ceramic brakes or a yellow car.
You could try a dark red for a change.

Don't you want your brakes to look like these?

High performance drums!

Reviving a super old thread here as I'm feeling impatient about adding some color to the calipers. What do you guys do about the PORSCHE lettering that is already on the stock calipers? Spray over them or do you use something to peel those off?

It doesn't peel off. Just paint over it, then add decals before the clear coat.

Get crazy with it
