Who has Painted their ZL1 calipers

My front left caliper peeled so I am forced to repaint. Since I am doing this I thought I might as well paint all 4. I have Ashen Grey 13 and not sure what color to paint the calipers. I would love some examples of other ZL1s with painted calipers.

Thanks.

Mine have started to peel too. I was thinking about going red also.
RobZL1 where did you get the labels for the calipers? are they cleared over to prevent them from peeling?

TPH coatings did them several few years ago (previous owner had them done). The sticker is under the clearcoat on mine.

It looks like TPH is out of business, but I know a lot of people have gotten the stickers on ebay, based on some of the past threads on calipers.

My passenger side front caliper started to peel. I simply removed the remaining peeling clear, wet sanded, and re-clear coated the area, and it looks factory fresh again.
