Default painted calipers?

So I have an 06 silver convert touring edition...shoes in the back.

Here's my question...do I paint the front calipers red (or silver) and drums the same color?...or just the calipers.

Second question...do I buy slotted rotors for the front also, or just leave the stock rotors.

I'd agree. Nothing shouts 'Pull me over" like Red!!

More subdued colors are my choice, Black would be good, especially with drums
Up here, the calipers last a few seasons, but drums you have to do every spring.

RED calipers and semi flat or satin black drums.

Cool Re: painted calipers?

Black or silver like the car!
(Unless you have red interior or pinstriping to coordinate with.)
