Not a fan of red calipers.

Looks great. Red and Black calipers are the only way to go.

Rare color for sure. Thanks for posting.

Your headlights look pretty faded - thought about doing a lens restoration kit?

Red calipers on a maroon red car? Fail. Painting the calipers on a base car with tiny stock brakes and wheels? Fail. That is something I would expect to see on a decade-old Honda Civic. There is nothing wrong with keeping the car clean and stock.

Nice work on the painting. But personally not feeling the two different shades of red - do they clash?

stock brakes should never be something other than black or silver. barbera red might be the only color that NEEDS chrome grills.

Was looking to tie in the red of the tails with something else red on the car. Doesn't look clashing to me. Just trying to cut out as much color randomness as possible. Need to figure out how to delete the ambers in my headlights. And yes my headlight housings are FUCKED.
