White Calipers and Drums??

I wonder if anyone painted both the front and rear brake white; I just have just front disc brakes. It would be nice if I had both front and rear discs brakes.

Yea I think I will be painting my drums with my factory paint and white for the discs. I live in North Dakota so I'll be hitting it with a clear coat as well.

I agree but rust is not cool either that's why I paint them cast iron gray with clear coat. It keeps them looking factory new for a while...

I painted my drums silver to match the calipers when I replaced them. Hasnt chipped or anything and its been over a year. I think I used the same high temp ceramic paint I used on my calipers.


Even with stock wheels it looks better than the old rusted drums...
