something different (colour wise)

Right so I decided that I wanted to upgrade to a better braking system so went for the type r setup. As the Calipers where off the car I thought that it would be a good opportunity to paint the calipers. Initially I was going to go red but then thought I'd try something I have seen:

Everything ready, on the way to my mates house to fit it all:


End result:







Going to color code the H on the wheel caps, overall am chuffed with the end result.

Looks great! Colour is really vibrant! Are you planning on matching it with any other part of the car, though?
