Seems like white calipers wouldn't stay white very long, with the brake dust and all.... 4EZT is going to have his calipers powdercoated in white... to match his super white Z. Personally, I like the way the red grabs your attention from behind the wheel.

well i want to tone down the whole "look at me look at my car" factor. red just.... i dont really have a reason. i just flat otu dont want red, they are red now and it just never did it for me. and black hides it too much... i think img anna do white. and aces, i can keep it clean. i'd spray it with 2 coats of clear so i can keep the glossy look and clean easily

Where's your imagination? There's a whole rainbow of colors to be tried, and with calipers, you can do a different shade for every season. I thought Burgundy was right for my Pearl Gold machine's calipers, been that color for years, but I may try something different this spring. Your white Z is neutral, so virtually any other color will complement it.

You don't want the "look at me, look at my car" syndrome? I'm sorry, you drive a Z32 - goes with the territory. Not a subtle car! Tried a Focus? Or, a Passat? Never be noticed again.

do in two steps if you want the letters a different color. First paint the color you want the letters to be then after letting dry THOROUGHLY use a q-tip and put a light coat of vaseline or similar on the letters and paint again the color you want the calipers themselves to be. Finish up by allowing to dry thoroughly and then clean really well. Apply a few coats of high tem clear coat.
