    Doh!

    I was fitting new discs and pads the other week and noticed my calipers where rusting, I had spotted some left over cans of paint in my garage so decided to clean my calipers and paint them. So a few hours later and I had some nice red calipers, I started putting my car back together then it hit me, I had brought EBC Green stuff pads so now it looks like I have giant Peppers in my wheels!

    What colour should I re-paint my calipers or should I paint the pads black?

    Yeah I think I need to paint the calipers black or silver, I only used red as it was left over in the garage from when I had a red mk1 golf, I didn't think about the green pads. Here's a picture for a laugh
