Any suggestion for these? They are non-sport.

Black - Agree.
Leave alone - Rust building up so need to paint them.
Replace with sport - too much money ...

I was thinking light red or LP to match my car.. Well we'll see!
Thanks for the input tho.

Here's my non-sport sedan stoppers, just VHC caliper paint and Infiniti logo decal on ebay (don't have the link anymore ) Been a couple years and still no chips

I'm thinking about taking on this task >_<. God help me

My question is simple. I think I already know the answer from the look of the photos, but I can't tell.

Did the OP paint the back of the Calipers as well and not just the front? If so, Did you let one side dry first before flipping it over and painting the other side?
