hey thats pretty cool. i like the silver vents on your colour. not too many cars can you paint them silver. they match well with the rims, very subtle.

How did you paint your calipers? Spray or brush? Left on the rotors, or removed?

i left the calipers on the rotors, and i used the brush, so theres a lot more control when compared to spray can.
i will take better pics when my decals come in and i can show off the complete project
and color on the vents is like 90% the same as the wheels so thats a good thing

Those red calipers almost take my eyes away from the amber, lol, j/k. I wish I could get the initiative up to paint mine again. Maybe next time I take my wheels off. Nice vents, I was thinking of what color would look good on black, nothing I presume, excpet GOLD! lol

FYI.

I was passing some time last week at the Porsche Exchange in Highland Park, IL last week during an errand. And I notice a new (2006 or 2007) Carrera in their new car inventory that had "Red Painted Calipers" listed in the exclusive options area on the window sticker. Porsche was charging over $1,600 for this "option" on a $90K car! Amazing.

I seen a Boxster same color combo as yours and he had his painted sort of a powder coat grey, matched up with his interior real well.



Just a thought
