I still think red is the way to go if you want them noticed. The silver and blacks just blend in and nobody ever notices them. I am getting ready to do mine in red. Just need a day with less humidity to paint them.

Any color is better than rust.. Had to say it.. lol

I used Flat black BBQ grill paint on my old gtp, looked great and was cheap $4.00. I used a wire brush on my drill to remove rust, and sprayed on brake cleaner. 3 coats later I was done.. I had enough to do my Rotor centers, Calipers, and bracket. Looked Good, but wasn't something noticed at shows. But still didn't grab your eye like rust..

Just remember our brakes are hella dusty and you will get lots of dust in hard to reach areas. Mine are silver & black but to do it again I would go all back.

Heres what the Duplicolor blue looks like.
Kind of a crappy pic, but you get the idea.
