ooops, I was thinking silver with a black brembo vinyl. I would go with G2, I think it will hold up longer.

calipers

My car is black and I have silver rally stripes and decided to do the calipers in red glad I did they just pop out. I believe if I would have painted thme silver they would have blended in with the wheels and rotors. I think they look awesome will post pics later this week.

Anyone have pics of silver brembo's on their car? Considering metallic silver on a RJT car, just want to see what they would look like.

you can get the high temp resistant vinyl at eaby

now to decide wether to go red or silver, Im kinda leaning on red w/ black brembo decals, but silver w/ black brembo decals would look good too...hhmmmm

I'd go Red with black Brembo lettering (from eBay).. Do you have your bowties vinyl'd?? You could do them in red as subtle accents for the calipers.

Let me know how it turns out, I take it you're going with G2 and going to paint them yourself.. I want mine done in red as well... Anybody know how G2 holds up compaired to powdercoating?? Thankx and good luck.

Whatever color you decide to go with (I'm partial to blue with white lettering) VHT makes some fantastic caliper paint. I have used it on multiple vehicles with great success:

These are the brembo decals that I have also used many times:
