I have a green Camaro and put black 22's and painted my calipers with G2 green, caliper paint and I'm not happy with it. First, the green that G2 sells doesn't match. It looks good from 50' away but a bystander next to you at a stop light looking at the side of your camaro will totally see a difference in the green shades. On top of it not matching the brake caliper paint is chipping and I following the instructions perfectly. I'm trying to see if I purchase a pint of the green synergy paint ($180.00) if I can just add G2's high heat liquid to it so it will work on the calipers. Don't paint if the green doesn't match.

How about black G2 caliper paint with green camaro caliper decals!

I did mine orange with black decals on an IOM however the caliper paint is not the color match. It compliments the car well but I'm not sure how far off the regular green is from the Synergy Green. You may certainly have to pay the $100 for the color match paint to look good.

If you want to do synergy green I would paint as the powder coat for synergy green does not match very well. Has anybody used this guy

Green would probably be good if you could color match. Otherwise it's a tuff call.

If they are Brembos I've always thought red looks good no matter what the color (that could be an exception on the Green car). To me all the performance cars like Porche and Vette that have the Brembos colored from the factory are usually Red.

Again....on Green??? that might be a funky contrast.

Well The G2 paint you used wont be the same green! its teo different paints. if you want the same color paint than you have to color match it. I also used the G2 paint (orange) on my Inferno Orange Camaro and of course its not the same but pretty damn close for something i can do for about $65-$70 myself. And yes from 50 feet they look the same but up close the orange is a little off but close enough for me to like it. I would also do GREEN!!!

Sherwinn Williams a pint is much less expensive. More like $126 a pint. They mix it while you wait. Takes 10 minutes or so.

Get them powdercoated green to match. Mike the Powdercoater will make up a custom color that will match perfectly.

It'll cost you $300 but that's all done and ready to go. And no hoping the paint chips off. Powdercoat is more durable. Love mine that he did.

You might contact him about Green. Thought I read where he was having trouble matching that color. He does great work though. Got mine done in VR with the large Brembo stickers.
