Question on painting brake calipers and drum

I was thinking about paint my brake calipers and drums red. Do you guys think this would look good or do you think I should paint them a different color. Here is a link to the a picture of my car without the brake calipers painted tell me if you think they will look good painted.

If anyone has a picture of there car with painted brake calipers show it to me.

Paint the drums black and calipers...what ever colour you want. Painting the drums to match the calipers is weak.

Buy some lowering springs too

Drums look good if they are painted flat or gloss black. Flat is better, less noticable, just like flat girls are less noticable

I've seen a couple people on this site who have just painted the outer rim of their drum <whatever> color. IMO it looks pretty good, not too tacky or anything.
