Looking for opinions. I've got a Kona Blue ST, I'm trying to put together a color scheme. Was thinking about painting the calipers white and swapping for white ST logos. Any thoughts? I know they'll get kinda dirty but I don't think it'll be so bad. Do you think white calipers would look lame? Seems like white with blue is pretty classic. Should I just stick with the red and blue theme?

Find something else to pay wait that won't look black after a couple days

Trying to decide what color to do mine too - red is standard. I like white but think it'll be impossible to keep clean. Like bronze or gold...but wouldn't mind something a little crazier, like lime green or something. Actually if I could do them in kona blue I would.

Mine are powder coated yellow to add that pop to my IS ST. They get dirty, but the yellow still shines through and looks good especially behind my gun metal TSW wheels:money:

You can in fact paint them Kona Blue. The company G2 that makes the caliper paint kits does custom colors.

Reallly???? I didn't know G2 did custom. Wonder how it would look. Looking into matte bronze wheels at some point and don't want it to clash.

POR makes caliper paint any experience with that? I have used their products in the past and been quite happy with them.

I don't think white would be much worse than yellow for cleanliness. A nice thick, smooth finish like the factory powder coating would help as well.
