Agree 100%

Don't touch the drums IMO but if you feel you must, stick with black.

Yea, thinking about doing the front red, but the back black, so they at least stand out a little :/

thoughts?

painted anything other than black or dark gray = ricey

why do ranger owners insist on ricey things?

It depends on how its done. Bright colors will require cleaning from time to time. If cleaning your brakes is not your thing, grey or black is the way to go.

Default Re: Paint brakes?

Are you guys taking the front calipers off completely to paint/prep?

I see now way of doing this without removing them.. which is fine, but I think if you leave them on how would you get the back side (inside) of them painted?

Probably going with red front and then black for the rear drums since mine are rusted and look like ass...

Thanks,
