    Makes you wonder why Skoda choose Kermit green for the calipers on the Octavia RS models...

    i don't see thefascination with painting calipers, especially when everyone paints them red, not the colour of the car. mine are staying nice and rusty to keep as much of the sleper look aspossible

    i wanted yellow!!! but my brother bought some paint to do his XRYi Fiesta so i thought i might as well steal it from him and try this getting ya hands dirty malarky. I dont like rusty things.. thats why i've put a chrome trim on my exhaust too... Boy racer look? nope!! just looks fine since the trim is the same size as the original exhaust. The red paint isn't too obvious since the alloys wheels dont show much of them so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb like i've seen on some other cars.

    the back drums looked nice all painted red..... its a shame the paint has melted now and dripped all over my alloys.

    suppose thats what i get for driving at excessive speeds (on private land of course).
