I need to refinish the brake calipers on my Ram SRT. I just finished re-doing the engine bay in polished aluminum and candy blue, question is should i match the calipers to the candy blue in the engine bay, or keep the red? Or do something like a candy red instead? Truck is silver.

Thanks

I think the pop of blue down in the wheels would look great and tie the engine bay work together.

Right on.
That was the original plan, to do matching blue, but at $500 for PC it's not a decision I want regrets about.

I got Inferno paint to do mine over the winter. Since I have black rims I thought doing them black would blend too much. And since they aren't Brembos I don't want them bring red, plus bright red on my car would look strange.

Tom C did it to his car, blue calipers, and it looks really good. I know he posted pics of it, just not the same color blue, it really pops.

My old R32 had blue calipers, and I've seen Tom's at shows. It does look good.
