Anyone with VR Camaro and painted calipers?

Looking for pictures of victory red Camaros with painted/powercoated Brembos. I'm thinking red brembos on a red car is a little to much red. Trying to find a nice contrasting color.

Thanks

Nice! The calipers will really stick out behind the black wheels. Glad to see your car. I would've never thought black wheels on a VR w/White stripes would've looked that good. Shoot me a pic once you get the calipers on.

I ordered the G2 caliper paint kit after I saw that picture a while back.

I went with the black brembo decals though. Wish I would have used white ones. I assumed the white ones would have stayed filthy from the brake dust.

The G2 kit is awesome for the money and the hardest part is getting the car on jack stands. Do it.
