I don't think I have the guts to do it until I see it, also with mine being a 1.6 the brakes ain't that big and so painting them bright orange will only accentuate that. My original plan was to go for something neutral - matt black, gun metal grey (current favourite).

How about you paint your Mk3's orange for me to see first [:D][Y]

Ha, you wouldnt be able to see them anyway.

If you don't like the orange, paint over it in black.

Be warned,

A relentless wave of jokes about Outspans and Jaffa's, especially Jaffa's will start if you do [:p]

It is! Go for it! Whats the worst that can happen? You paint over it in black!

Get some hammerite, wicked stuff, not sure if it comes in orange, I have a few tins of unopened colours!

6 degrees of separation,

Orange = Jaffa = Jaf-far = Stargate = Tilk = Holgram on head = Rimmer !

Do want want to be called Rimmer ? cos that's what'll happen. Perhaps Walrus will be along and start being filty about Jaffas soon.

Let me just get my shades! [H]

Bling! Especially on your car. Send me over a decent pic of your calipers. You don't have multispoke wheels do you!? Will be a nightmare!

That looks pretty good against your paint. Could you photochop mine pink to match the paint? [:)]

Good effort, but ya see, that makes the calipers look tiiiiny [:(]

Or how about this, better pic, there is more to the caliper than the bit you re-coloured, there are some bits above and below the two pads that make it look slightly bigger?
