  • Caliper paint, crappy pics with camera phone






    What do you think? The red looks a bit "neon" almost with the lighting on the top of our parking garage at work. And like I said, they were with a camera phone.

      Thanks man! At first I wasn't really sure how the red would look with the silver, but I think it came out damn nice.

        well...you sure can see em, lol.

        i like the way the red kinda sets off the rotors from the rims, kinda helps to accent the rims too. very nice. [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/biggrin.gif[/img]

                  My goal is to have the colors on my car to be silver/black/red. I figured since the saturn logo's were red it may accent it a little bit.

                  Plus, it looks much better in person than on those pics. I didn't go with silver becuase thats what color they were when they were stock, and I just didn't like. (for whatever reason) I thought, they won't look much different than they did before. But its all good, I like 'em, and a few others like them.

                  We'll see what they look like when I get the rotors on there, just in case I may want to change it.

                    Thats how it looks in person. Its a much deeper flat red than in the pics.

                        did you vinyl over or color your sidemarkers red? or is that just the orange showing up really bright in the pic?

                          Its just a reflection, they are still stock.

                            I know what you mean, but at least they arn't bright yellow [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/redface.gif[/img]

                            But like I said, depending on what it looks like with the new rotors, I may change it. Maybe Black or something.

                              Not really my taste in colors but it looks good! I usually lean toward "neutral colors", like black, which is what I shot my calipers in. Although I do kind of wonder if I should have shot them a "steel" or "iron" color; a color close to what the unpainted calipers were.
