Are they or have you painted them as they also look good behind your new wheels.

If you painted them what did you use and how long ago did you do it ?

Thanks Dave, yes I painted the calipers and hubs myself, I used Hammerite smooth paint (silver) and just made sure the area was grease-free using brake cleaner solvent spray (and left to dry/ evaporate) I used different sized brushes depending on how intricate the part was I was painting!
Just took my time, and left the car for a few days afterwards to fully cure the paint.
I always clean my wheels inside and out once a week without fail, so I give the calipers a quick clean with the EZ detail brush I use. http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wheels.../prod_480.html
This stops the brake dust from building up, and keeps the calipers looking like new.
