    One of the things on my list is to paint the calipers, but cannot decide on a colour, think I've narrowed it down to either blank or silver, anyone else done their calipers?

    Yer leaning towards that colour. I guess it will also be easier to keep clean.

    I think it's going to be black, far easier on the maintenance and cleaning. Going to order a Por 15 caliper painting kit.

    Black or silver mate, no big colours for standard calipers

    Yours looks like Akoya Silver...
    I done black but find they get lost behind the wheel! I'm going to do silver next I think...

    No not yet, car is in the body shop at the moment having the rust on the tailgate fixed. Think I'm going to go black.
