i have to do my front brake pads on the 89 vert and i got some flat red high temp paint for the calipers. the car is bone stock and red. i dont think i want to do the rears since they are only 1 piston calipers. if i paint them i will do the entire thing red and then grind the paint off of the raised "mazda." what do you guys think?

This is the best i can do right now. They show up a little better if there is some actual light out.
