Haven't done it yet, because my car is not here yet. Will be doing it when I get it.

Calipers

That is one of my few pet peeves.

The calipers are just brushed metal. I would highly reccomend either polishing them or painting them. Red would be good on most cars. Black or yellow would also look good on certain colors.

Well painting the cali's are on the schedual for this fall projects... I have the car tucked away waiting for a break in the weather. I still want to put a few more km's on before I store it for winter. I have a black car so I was thinking I would paint them red... What do you think?

Red is perfect for a Black car. Black would be perfect for a Red car.

I painted the calipers on my GTO from the stock Red to Blue on my Cyclone Gray. Everyone who has seem them said that it looks better than the original red. I think that a good contrast is an eye catcher.

Not that you will have a problem with that in a Solstice. LOL

G2 Paint caliper kit.

Go to........ www.decalgirl.com..... for a G2 paint kit for your calipers. I did my S2000 and the quality is first rate. I know some people that have had theirs painted for 3 yrs and still looks brand new. You get more than enough
paint to do all 4 calipers. For 39.95 its a very good deal. They have 7 or 8 different colors to choose from. You can also get decals to go on your calipers ....and yes they do last. I dont think they have any for the slostice
but im sure if they had enough request they would make some.

My car is grey (Sly), so what do you guys think would be a good color for the calipers??

I'm thinking red, blue, or yellow??

Also, what kind of paint would you use for this and from what store??

Red, black, silver, and MAYBE blue would be your best bet with Sly.

Brake Calipers are painted with high-temp paint. You can buy kits designed for painting calipers too for $20-$40.
