What powder coated color setup for my car?

I have a black camaro with the white stripes from the factory. I am currently running the matte black ZL1 wheels. Which color setup would you recommend? Im not good and deciding these kinds of things. And if your running a black camaro will you post a picture of how yours turned out?

Either
1 - Black with white and red brembo logo
2- Red with white brembo logo
3 - Black with white brembo logo
4 - Red with black brembo logo

If you want the caliper to stand out, go with red. If you want a more subtle look go with black. You could even go with a white caliper, but good luck keeping it clean. I think Metalic Blue caliper would look pretty cool. Did that on the Brembo's on my Caddy. Looking for pics, will post if I find em.

Also, when i go to remove my calipers will i need to bleed my calipers at that time or when i get them back and go to re-install them? Ill be going to steel braided lines from there.

Red with white decals is always a winning combo. Don't do black you'll just hide those nice brembos.

Votes seem to be coming in heavy on the red with white brembo logo. I think we might have found a winner!

I would bleed them. You may want to flush the entire system at the time and replace with some Motul RBF-600 Dot 4 or equivalent. With all your mods you will want to stop in time.

You have to bleed them as they will have no fluid in them after the powdercoat process. Same for the SS lines. At mentioned above use a good DOT4 fluid. I also run Motul.

I agree, plus with the engine potentially being forged and more boost and overall power to come i figured why not do a little upgrading and sprucing up to the breaking quality.

I am going to run Amsoil Dot4. And should i wait till the new breaks are on to bleed them or before i take them off? I have yet to personally work on these style of breaks (Bleed them or get a better understanding of what it will take to replace the lines and remove the break calipers).

Put your new lines and calipers on first and then bleed the whole system. There is a proper convention to this that I don't remember. I think it is right rear than left rear, etc. Double check this.

once you put them on get a turkey baster and suck out as much of the old fluid from the reservoir than fill it with the new fluid. Start your bleeding at the passenger rear than driver rear passenger front and finally driver front. bleed until you see the new fluid at each wheel. Put the key in the on position to keep the abs module active also make sure you keep and eye on the reservoir and dont let it get less than half. keep adding fluid as needed.
