Default Rear Drums Dress Up

I know that you can paint the front brake calipers to dress them up, but what can you do to pretty up the rear drums? Will they take paint as well? [:I] What other ideas are out there?

Yes you can paint the outside of the drum brakes. You can use the same high temp paint that you use on the disc calipers.
I had it done on a previous vehicle.

...or you can have disks made up to cover the rear drum that look like rear rotors.

pretty slick, Crewzin. I would love to see pics of folks who painted their drums. Would it be cool to paint them body color (red, blue or white) or just paint them black to try to hide them? [:I] Anyone out there want to show off their tricks?

There's blue PT in my Tampa Bay club that put on the dust liners on all 4 wheels and painted them blue.

I painted mine the same color as the flames that runs down my belt line. I will take a picture this week and post. Also re-painted my calipers this past Sunday and cleared them as well. Looks sharp!
