Default painted calipers and drums?

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.

Not sure it'll look good accenting the drums...what do you think?

I was thinking I would black out the drums on my black 05 and get rid of the multi color of the drums.

After looking at your pic of the car...... black out the drums, red calipers with slotted rotors.
