Help me decide what colour !

Post by Bodyboarder » Thu Sep 13, 2018 5:26 pm

This has been doing my head in for a while now !

Going to be ordering a set of front calipers for my coupe and can’t decide on what colour I should go with ......

Car is Monaco blue with red leather

What would you go for ?

I’ll be painting the rears to match as well

Was thinking silver to stay classy :wink:

But now thinking grey or red would look good ....

Yellow, or dark blue as 2nd choice. That's what I would choose to match your car colour. You don't need to match anything else on your car, but keep the wheels silver. If you want to compliment the colour of your seats, wear black trousers. :D

First choice: A subdued red to match the leather.
Second choice: Silver to match the wheels.

Just painted my front Orange (black car)
Not sure I like it yet. Thing concerning me is the tiny rear calipers...size of a postage stamp, won't look right so may change to silver or black

Personally, I like the 'plain' look of the older AP/Alcon racing calipers...

Someone else here painted theirs a 'carbon grey'. Looked very nice. But I do like that AP racing colour.....
