Black. Leave the red for the ricers.
 






I have a black X and I did mine silver, I think it gives a nice clean look, with at least some contrast.
 






Yeah, id go with black too...

I almost bought the paint to do it, then I realized I need to quit wasting my money on cosmetics, and buy the parts I need to get it on the road first lol
 






My ex is black and I just got finished painting the trim flat black with krylon fusion flat blacK paint...I also bought G2 paint for calipers...I read its good and holds up...bought it black so I can black out the whole car...ill put some pics up later to show u how it looks so far

Duplicolor makes a caliper specific paint. Works quite well. Have had it on my Mustang for a couple years now and still looks great.

Just cleaned them real good with some brake cleaner, the scuffed them with a little sand paper. Masked and painted.
Cost like $30 to do all 4.
