    I loved the look of the bare metal matched up against your grey SR. If it were mine I would try just clear coating them. They just looked so nice seeing brand new calipers like right off the lot, from the factory even. They didn't even look like they had seen the outside before.

    I just recommend using high temp paint for the calipers so that it will last longer.
