135 caliper colors?!

Hi all, I'm new to this forum and hopping to get all my questions answered with all yalls feedback. I was wondering what colors do you guys think would look nice to powdercoat the beautiful 135 break calipers with? Any pic would be much appreciated too! I was thinking of a lime green or simple brembo red?

Why color are your wheels and car? You need something that will contrast with them nicely

Haha. Honestly, the brake dust isn't that visible believe it or not. Lime green would look great!

Part of the question was what color is you CAR. "Stock" is not a good answer for that.

Red is great, even on non performance brakes
